Hi Fellow Surfers,

Cheers to every one.
I'm new to the BBForum and glad to find a very active online community for Broadband discussions in India.

Does anyone know about any Bandwidth Meter software which can selectively avoid counting the downloads during happy hours. DU Meter, Netmeter and its clones does not have such time exclusion features.

BWmeter can do this, but the stupid 24Online client prevent it from working and the computer itself does not boot if I install BWmeter along with 24 Online Client.

It would also help if anyone has a working alternative to 24Online client so that I can use BWmeter itself. Slyberoam is no more updated and it does not work.

My ISP give 2 Mbps (Yes...250 Kilo Bytes per second) connection with night time unaccounted access from 11 PM to 6:00 AM (Happy hours). The monthly limit is 2 GB for access during other times, ie 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM. I dont want the bandwidth meter to count my usage doing the happy hours.

Cheers and have a nice time....

why not just close down the application when the 'happy hours' are going on?

Yes thats a neat trick,

1. Create a batch file to kill the application (use taskkill command, or you can download a utility from http://www.beyondlogic.org/solutions/proce...rocessutil.htm)
2. Create a batch file to start the appication
3. With task schedular, schedule first batch file to execute at start of happy hours
4. Schedule second batch file to execute at start of happy hours.

Thats exactly what I do now...

But never thought of the task scheduler option.. Thanks Netfreak for the tip...

But it would have been a lot more neat if any Bandwidth Monitoring tool could support this.

I'm paying 750 Rs per month only for the 2Mbps night unlimited connection.It is available from Aksh and it required quite some time and discussions to make them issue that package. They were basically selling only the 64Kbps unlimited package.The package costs are mentioned in the website itself. Infact all packages other than the crappy 64Kbps unlimited package are 2 mbps packages with different volume and time limits
