I'm not sure that it does. Have you thought about tbbmeter which may give you usage figures?

See http://www.thinkbroadband.com/tbbmeter.html

As a possibility.

Enable telnet sessions on your DG834G by clicking on enable telnet.

telnet to your router by entering the command

telnet 192.168.0.1

from a command prompt.

Enter the following command (it displays the contents of a file)

cat /proc/avalanche/avsar_modem_stats

Towards the end of the file will be lines such as

[ATM Stats]
        [Upstream/TX]
        Good Cell Cnt:  161790
        Idle Cell Cnt:  4571774


        [Downstream/RX)]
        Good Cell Cnt:  4677057
        Idle Cell Cnt:  28974921
        Bad Hec Cell Cnt:       0
        Overflow Dropped Cell Cnt:      0


The good cell counts (up and downstream) may be the number of data packets sent and received. Multiply these by 48 to get the number of bytes of data sent and received.

N.B. these counts are reset when the router is restarted.

eta: corrected cell payload to 48 bytes.

Looking again it's probably simpler to

cat /proc/avalanche/avsar_modem_stats|grep load

which will output a line such as

US Payload :            8909520 DS Payload:             227781168


which is the number of data bytes sent/received.
