Connection Monitor

I'm looking for a linux version of Windows connection monitor, the standard one that appears beside the clock when you connect.
I connect to the 'net using ADSL, all connections done at boot.

Does anybody know of package that would do me?

Thanks in advance,

if you mean the little computer that lights up blue when there's network traffic then icewm comes with one, i would guess both kde and gnome have one but i dont use either so i dont know.

I'd thought about that but I don't know if they will display the status/usage for a connection not setup through them.

I might be totally wrong, I'll check when I get home from work.

hm...I'm not entirely sure what you're looking for. If you're looking to monitor network traffic, then you could just watch your switch....or indeed, you could use something like firestarter on a very liberal firewall that will show up whenever there's traffic on the network...[although if you've got a switch rather than a hub, you'll only see network traffic that is intended for you]
