What I want to do though is have an automated script that will pull this from the router and throw it into something useful and meaningful like how much data was sent and received that day. I did some Googling and found a VBS script that suppsedly did it but it gave me an error in Win7 and a blank log file in XP (It uses something called W3Sockets dll or somesuch).
Please do not suggest TBB Meter or other software meters that run on the LAN side unless they:-
1. Monitor all PC's.
2. Monitor IPv6 tunnel traffic (TBB Meter currently doesn't without disabling it's internet monitoring mode. See caveat below).
3. Does not measure internal LAN file traffic (Sending files etc). If I want TBB Meter to measure internet traffic only this works but it does not measure IPv6 tunnel traffic. If I set it to measure all traffic it will work but that is no good since it measures file transfers etc. I just want to measure WAN traffic.
The only other option would be to buy a better router with dd-wrt but I don't see why I should have to when the data is there to be had. It's just a bit awkward making it into something useful. A script that can pull the packets sent and received from the Netgear IP, times it by the MTU and dump it into a log would be ideal as I could then set a schedule to run it.
Has anyone had experience with trying to do this?
