I just got optical fiber installed in my place which gives me great download speeds. Now my ISP has a monthly download limit of 120GB, after that I gotta pay overages.

Now my setup is like this:

Fiber modem (1 port) -> Linksys E3000 router (4 ports + wifi).

All my gear is hooked up to the Linksys router (xbox, ps3, media center, office pc & 2 laptops).

I would like to keep track of the total "internet" bandwidth use of all devices, but exclude the normal network traffic, as that of course I don't pay for.

Is there something that I can install on the Linksys router that can keep track of that kinda of information?

In general, if your question asks "Is there something that I can install" then it's OT for Stack Overflow. If you wanted to write some code that would do this task, then you'd be in the right place, but that sentence makes it sound like you don't want that. I've flagged this for migration to Super User, where questions like this are on-topic. –  Kevin Vermeer Oct 28 '11 at 15:14
    
There are third-party firmware images for your router which will give you that functionality (if it isn't already built in). I'm sure the folks on SuperUser will know more. You can "flag" your own question for migration if you'd like. –  derobert Oct 28 '11 at 15:38
