Oops, Not sure which ISP you are with, but you need to contact them to get their network usage spec.

i.e. for Internode:

Check out
Internode :: Support :: Tools :: Usage Meters (http://www.internode.on.net/support/tools/usage_meters/)

Down the bottom of the page it talks about writing your own usage meter.
Basically you email Node and they send you the network spec to use. Then you pick a programming language and go at it.
