I have 3g USB modem HUAWEI and I use it to be connected to the Internet. My question is is there any connection meter that works with Ubuntu, which should able to display the current connection speed and the total traffic consumed?
The system monitor has an applet that show the network traffic, but it only works for wired Ethernet connections.
There is another little question, many times, the USB modem does not able to automatically connect via the 3g when the login is established. it need to disable the network and re-enabling it again in-order to be connected or even remove the USB modem from the USB port and then inserting it again. Is there any way to make the USB modem to be able to work more smoothly and also to work before login?
My moodem is HUAWEI Mobile broadband E153.
