I have a PB3400 with an internal modem.  I am looking for a program (preferably an extension) which will display the status and throughput of my modem (I really like Global Village's one which shows a bar graph in the menu-bar but it doesn't work for the apple/asante modem).

This program/extension should operate in a very small window or better yet, in the control panel strip, menu bar etc.

Any answers or hacks will be WELL appreciated!

If you use FreePPP, it has an optional window to view progress. Howver, this may not be as sophisticated as you want, so I will not submit this as an answer.

Yes OT/PPP it shows you in its control panel (actually an application) the throughput of your modem (any modem it is)... it does more than the GV one, because it differentiate between sending and receiving...

I use Open Transport so FreePPP could not work in this instance.  I did not know about this feature in PPP - pretty neat but unfortunately, it doesn't work like Global Village which puts the graphic Throughput indicator in the menu bar.  This allows it so that you can see status all the time without taking valuable screen space and window switching that PPP takes up.

Now that I know where to find this indicator, I will now try to hack PPP so that it will take up less screen real estate.

Thanks Dimauro
