Recently my ISP (AT&T) decided to institute a bandwidth cap for all Internet users and I believe my ceiling is at 250 GB per month since we have a U-verse membership (premium), it's lower for basic Cable & Internet users. Anyhoo, I highly doubt that my family comes anywhere near that max figure but I'd like to be able to check every once in awhile. Using Linux, does anyone know of a good tool for this job? All suggestions are Welcome.

Thanks for that Jay. I guess part of the problem is that I don't quiet know what I'm looking for in a Bandwidth Meter. I think I need something that works at the router level and can compute the download stats for all of the devices in my household. Most of those tools are for one machine. I'll go read up a bit on these and see if anything sticks out.
Shouldn't my ISP provide me a way to regulate my usage, since they want to charge for overages, shouldn't I be entitled to something to help me here? even if it is for Windows only.

vnStat - a network traffic monitor for Linux and BSD
Somehow. It can be tied in with Conky in case you did not think of that.

You are going to have to google for the conky script though.

Unfortunately that meter doesn't work for me. It also says that until it starts working for me and other users that I/we am/are not to be concerned about overages.

Sorry Bro, my expertise level does not cover that yet either. I thought Conky and vnstat would work because of that incomplete Ubuntu thread, (poster did not reveal how it got it working ).
