Can anyone recommend a good program that will track my Internet usage?

I'm looking for something that may allow me to set quotas like weekly quotas for different users in my computer, and will also allow me to track the traffic. I know of ClientZone it's good but it doesn't offer me the extra features like quota settings that I want.

I used to use BitMeter II many years ago when capped was still outrageously expensive. It can't set hard-qouta's that would cut off access, but it does allow soft qouta's. Something like NetWorx does support disconnecting when you exceed the qouta. Both tools offer great reporting on bandwidth usage.

The only method I know for creating hard quotas on a per user basis involves using an intermediary proxy such as Squid, however that its a bit heavy duty (and useless if you run only Windows). Hopefully someone has a better suggestion for that :)

Thanks will check these out.
I use a program called NetSpeed Monitor. It's pretty handy as it also shows your connection speed in realtime in your system tray. Only downside is, it monitors and counts ALL network activity, which means files transferred over LAN will be counted with your Internet Usage.
Sounds good to me, thanks will check it out too.
