internet use

I need to change ISP, bút most of the cheaper providers have a useage limit, is there some software or windows utility that measures internet use so I can get an idea of how much my family uses each month, I have a wireless network with two pc's and a laptop used on it.

Hi, when I install shaplus bandwidth monitor I get this error when I try to run it?
"runtime error 6 overload"

Hi, I found and installed NetWorx 5.0.8, it seems to be doing the job. However, will I need to install it on all the computers in my house that connect to the wireless network? or just the main one that the router is set up on?
Thanks for your help.

My local exchange is not LLU enabled so I could only get there £17.50 ADSL!

"BT have set a target date of Q4 2009 for the switch to 21CN for the Talgarth exchange" Anyone know if, when this happens, would the exchange be LLU enabled?

No, I'm afraid it doesn't mean your exchange will be LLU enabled.

21CN is a totally different system than the standard phone network (PSTN - Public Switched Telephone Network).

21CN (21st Century Network) means basically shifting the whole network over to a digital TCP/IP system, in the long term this will mean faster ADSL connections, as the part of the connection from your ADSL router to the ISP equipment will no long be hobbled by switching between analogue to digital.
