Try "iptraf". It's ncurses based and cool to use.

Wireshark (earlier called Ethereal) also has a command line tool called "tshark"

Both iptraf and Wireshark are available for Gentoo.

And to keep track of bandwidth and sites visited, you need to have a proxy or a similar mechanism. If you are already using Squid proxy there are quite a lot of things to help you with it. There are simple programs like squidview, SARG or more advanced things. If you don't have Squid and don't want to have you might want to try one of the tools like Nagios or ntop.
