NetHelper (Wi-Fi edition)

LAST VERSION - 1.2

09-Jun-10

NetHelper is an update for TM. HetHelper allows you to monitor incoming and outgoing traffic for the specified interface (adapter) and shows an illustrative graph of using traffic. You can also view additional information about the adapter (adapter name, interface speed, MAC address, etc.). Unlike TM, the values of variables for the sended and received bytes are not limited by DWORD type (~4GB). NetHelper uses a new functions for getting and calculating the traffic, which I put in a separate UDF (IPHelper.au3) for those who want to write your own programs using these functions.

NetHelper written specifically for Windows Vista or later (I tested on Windows 7 x86), and will not work on XP, do not try to cheat, it's still no good will come of it. Why Wi-Fi Edition? The only difference in the icons that appear in the system tray. Of course, the program will work with any physical adapters installed on your computer. If necessary, you can change the colors for graphics, update speed, and some other hidden settings in the following registry hive:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareNetHelper

As usualy, I will be glad to any feedback and suggestions.

Nice program (as usual)!

Why don't you display both statistics in one graph (download + upload)?

Further when I press the rmb on the tray icon and open the statistic window and press afterwards the rmb again on the tray icon and move the mouse up then tray menu moves (jumps) also up.

I'm using Vista x32.

It's a price for a small window. I do not want to make a wide or high window. Moreover, I do not want to decrease the size of the graph.

I'm using Vista x32.

Sorry, unfortunately I do not have Windows Vista (I use Windows 7 x86), but I not used anything other than native Tray... functions. It's beyond me.

I thought someting like the display of Process Explorer (CPU Usage -> red and green). No need to change size.

The 2nd issue might be with my notebook. I will test it also on my other notebook (also Vista x32 and Windows7 x64).

Yes, but there is another problem. Unlike processor, transmit and receive speeds may vary in x10 or more. If draw them in the same scale in a single graph, then one of them you just will not see. Edited by Yashied

My service gives me 100mbps down and 40mbps up, but this app shows 13mbps down and 5Mbps up. What's wrong? What do I need to change in the app. If that's off, could the transfer be ff as well?

Because this program shows traffic in megabytes (MB), not megabits (Mb or Mbit).

100 Mbit = 100 / 8 = 12.5 MB

40 Mbit = 40 / 8 = 5 MB

Ok thanks. Is there a way to reset the transferred count without restarting the computer?

No, this is a system counter. But you can disable and enable again the network interface in Control Panel.
