    Is there a way to stop the Network Usage keeping resetting after some days? At my system it resets to 0 after some time...

      that is because the default network usage counter just uses a 32 bit long int to count bytes. 

      the fix at the link below offers a workaround which will allow your counter to go into very, very high values which you will probably never reach

    Hi, I appreciate this is quite old, but is there any recent URL for this?  Can't seem to get access to the URL supplies, and I think I have this issue, it currently reads
    eth0  2.78 GB  1.30 GB  0/0
    However it should read about 2.78 down and 258GB up.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Also, Im using version 2.5.4, so maybe this was fixed in a later release, can anyone confirm?
