about NetMeter Mar 2016

I've used it back in the Windows 2000/XP days (2003 and up) and it was a great program to check whether the network works. Moved to NetWorx on new Windows. I still recommend using NetMeter if you own an old PC, since the newest version of NetWorx is not Windows 2000 compatible.

We have very good experience with Networx on Vista 64 bit and also on Windows 7 prof. 64 bit. The network traffic calculations of 2 computers are OK and summed up correctly.
