Network Monitor II
Network Monitor II is a Windows widget that provides you important information about the current network connection. You can view the network traffic and information about your IP address directly on your desktop without installing other network monitoring tools.
The widget has a customizable interface that allows you to change its size and the information that are displayed. There are two styles available by default but you can also change the colors of every element in order to match your desktop theme. If you make a lot of changes but the result is not what you expected, you can restore the default settings with just one click.
Among the information that is displayed by the widget you can find the local or the external IP address, the network usage and the current upload or download rate. Also included are details about bandwidth usage. The traffic counter lets you automatically save the information when the application is shut down.
The Info button extends the information provided by the widget with data related with the network interface such as the MAC address, the Internet gateway and the DNS server that is used by the computer. The widget provides you with detailed information about the owner of the current IP address when you put the mouse cursor over the flag displayed on the right side.
Network Monitor II is a fully customizable network information provider that is simple in design but has all the functions that you require to monitor the network traffic for your computer.
