There is a decent built-in network monitor in Windows 7 (probably Vista, too) - although it doesn't show up in the tray. Just Ctrrl-Shift-Esc to bring up Windows Task Manager and go to the 'Networking' tab. OR. Under the 'Performance' tab, click 'Resource monitor'. That brings a comprehensive aggregated view of different performance metrics of the system, including network speeds. –  Cristi Diaconescu Apr 23 at 12:02

NetSpeedMonitor shows download/upload speed on system tray. It's free and lightweight.

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. With NetSpeedMonitor you can monitor the current speed (up- and downstream) of your Network Interfaces and the amount of data transferred.

I've started using this app today, and I must tell that it's become indispensable for me from now on. It's very light, and the configuration options are versatile. –  Mehper C. Palavuzlar Aug 4 '11 at 19:08
    
Nice App but it often crashes and takes explorer.exe down with it –  manubkk Oct 10 '12 at 9:13

I currently use Networx. It's stable and non-intrusive and can show traffic in several different ways, including a variably-transparent popup window, a taskbar graph and an animated system tray icon. I've also used NetMeter.

NetTraffic seems to do what you want.
