Recommend a software to monitor internet usage

Well i have a home network with two desktops and a laptop with my internet connection shared using a wireless router.....

I want to monitor the net usage of my network.... that is basically the data send or received by the router to the internet and not the traffic between the computers in my network..... well i need an SNMP software monitoring the router...

I hope you understand what i mean..... the software i am looking for is similar to Online eye pro in windozzz

Please help me find such a software for linux....

Those graphs in "Online Eye Pro" look like they were ripped right out of mrtg don't they ?

That may provide some of what you are looking for.

mesiol is right, I can get a lot of that info from my router now that I have reloaded it with the dd-wrt firmware.

Have you considered buying a router that supports one of the open Firmware projects ?
