Is there a way to display the network utilization (e.g. bytes sent/received per second) of SB3 when it is connected to Squeezenetwork ?

In that mode the SB3 connects directly through the router so looking at the Windows task manager of the slimserver PC is irrelevant

You would need something in your router or on your network.

What I have might get a little close - I run SmoothWall (http://www.smoothwall.org/) on an old PC.

SmoothWall reports traffic stats in an aggregate fashion, but being Linux, it almost certainly can be customized to show real-time statistics.

Thanks Mark. Indeed it can be done with dd-wrt router firmware which supports ntop statistics tool

Latest version of dd-wrt has a bandwidth monitor which I find very useful for tracking SB3 network activity

It nicely complements the "show buffer fullness" option of the display

Is your router have SNMP functionality? If it does the freeware version of this will do the job for you.
