If you are using the Routers2 frontend, then enable 'total and 95th percentile mode' by placing 'percentile=yes' in the routers2.conf.  This will then report totals over the graph time window for rate-based calculations.

We use this feature to keep track of Internet usage at home on a per-teenager basis...

I have set up MRTG to watch my Apple Airport.

It works great, but I cannot get the numbers I want.  I want to get a total of packets sent/received on the interface between the Airport and the cable modem.

I have searched for how to configure MRTG to get the numbers you want, but I cannot find the answer to this.
