Anyone know of a way to track how much data my modem or router has used?

I know there are apps to track phones, ipads, and computers separately but I was hoping that there's one that totals it all up by tracking the modem itself or the router. I'm limited to 100GB a month and somehow I went about 70GB over last month. I buy all my movies through iTunes and I built a PC about 2 months ago, so I think went on a download spree from the Steam Summer Sale and Humble Bundle sales.

Get a better ISP.

Don't support companies that impose caps.

I'm stationed in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere in Germany. I'm luck my internets fast enough to download games.

Well I have Comcast, and I can check using my online account, but you can also try by calling them and maybe they can tell you.

What type of router do you have? Some have a built in tracking system, others support the ability to put custom firmware on it that can do that tracking.

Netspeed Monitor appears to be a good one.

Your IP should offer a bandwidth tracker on their site though ( Mine does after I log in )

However; it could be vastly different in Germany.

@Acquire

I have an AirPort Extreme router. Hopefully it can track data, then.
