Measure system traffic -

My ISP Wildblue limits me to 5 gig's upload and 17 down over a thirty 
day period. For the last nine months this has not been a problem, 
however last month they made a system change and said they were 
measuring usage more accurately.  Now we are running perilously close to 
the limits for the last thirty days and I'm not certain why.

We have four computers [FC6, Mac, and W2k] running on the wireless LAN 
which appears as eth0 to my computer. The system is comprised of the 
satellite receiver/modem, a Netgear wireless router, and some Linksys 
wireless bridges and/or adapters.  Can someone tell me how I can track 
usage and determine how much each user is consuming?
