    Monitor throughput?

    I'm not sure this is the right place for this question, but it always arises when I'm using Outlook, so....

    Back in the old days when I used dial-up, the applet would let me see how many bytes have come and gone. When the connection slowed way down or stalled, I'd know it.

    Now that I have cable modem, I'm at a loss. This is particularly important because AT&T bought my local cable company, which had been great, and now I'm experiencing what I call "micro-outages" in which I go offline for a minute or two (e.g. my instant messenger disconnects and can't get mail or web pages), and even when that's not happening, throughput can be reeeaaaal slow.

    Are there any tools out there that will log throughput, or at least let me see as much as the dialer applet used to?

    Thanks,
    deN

    I think this is one way to do it:

    Hmmm... I thought that anyone could get this in the past. It looks like you MAY have to sign up as a ZDNet member to get their FREE downloads now...

    You da man!! Thanks, that ZDNet download was even better than I expected. Probably the best 400k download I've seen since the days of MS-DOS! :>
