I am writing this article sitting at a café and working on a Wi-Fi connection. In my country (and I guess in a few other places too), Wi-Fi broadband is notorious for fluctuating and flagging speeds. As a full-time web worker, I have to be on top of things and one of those things is a consistent internet speed.
NetSpeedMonitor is a lightweight network monitoring toolbar for your Windows Taskbar designed to be used on computers that run Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista or Windows 7. One of the things I straightway liked about this traffic monitoring free software is that it requires no additional drivers and works straight after the install without any additional configurations.
NetSpeedMonitor works from the taskbar. You can view it by right-clicking on the taskbar and selecting the NetSpeedMonitor toolbar. You can then proceed to its configuration options. The configuration has a few settings that enable you to select the network interface you want to monitor – be it a fixed line internet connection or a data card. You can also configure these settings during the install.
