Need a way to monitor broadband internet traffic only

I have a 2 machine LAN with both machines having an ethernet card and a wireless card. There is a Netgear router, both eth and WiFi, allowing both machines to access the internet.

On my Linux machine I am looking for some software that allows me to keep track of my broadband usage on that machine, excluding traffic between the two machines.

There are numerous such programmes for this in XP, which use Winpcap and a GUI frontend. The "other" machine on my LAN is XP and uses just such a program.

Can anyone suggest a Linux alternative which I can use?

Thankyou

iptraf is another good utility to monitor bandwidth flow on any given or all interfaces attached to your system.

It has facility to log activity. In fact if you want detailed results in pretty graphs you can try Systemgraphs rrdtool. Its awesome and you can get usage over a specified range of time. It used iptraf in the background. Check http://www.decagon.de/sw/systemgraph/ .
