is it possible to monitor realtime bandwidth via ssh or telnet ?
if yes, what must i type ?
There is no way to provide "probably" what you want with the stock firmware tools. The best you've got is this:
while true; do grep `nvram get wan_iface` /proc/net/dev; sleep 1; done
This will show you a series of numbers associated with the WAN interface on your router. For what those numbers represent, see cat /proc/net/dev and read the header.
You can write a small sh script that can, using very simple math, tell you the number of bytes-per-second that is flowing across an interface. Good luck!
Install "nload" through Optware.
both are in optware.
