  1. If you are using console, then i would recommend using iptraf and iftop for traffic and bandwidth monitoring.

  2. Problem is on ubuntu and mint it only works if gnome network manager is installed, if you use Wicd then it does not work at all and network manager has issues of frequent disconnections on mint 18x

    I believe that we have reached up at a stage on the linux platform in terms of maturity that now these small things should be part of the Basic default installations in the Linuxmint / Ubuntu Platforms like any other internet programs firefox / thunderbird or Torrent apps.
