Short answer is depends on what you are using to make the connection. If you are using kinternet then right-click on it and select the view data rate.

What are you using?

.....And no matter what you're using to connect, you can view realtime stats for eth0, ppp0, etc. with gkrellm.

I recently startet using gkrellm to watch my network traffic.
I have dsl (ppp0) with card eth0 (nothing else networking).
Comparing gkrellm's two summaries of eth0 and ppp0 traffic I realized that the traffic for eth0 is higher than for ppp0... That's normal? I thought both must be equal for they are apparently the same?
