Is there an applet that shows an indicator on the top bar that shows the network up and down usage in kb/mb (not %)

I have come across "indicator-network" but apparently it has device issues?

Anyway im sure there's a simple applet for this.

Im using 11.10

Have you looked at conky ? – bodhi.zazen Jan 8 '12 at 18:31

Netspeed Indicator could help you. And System Load Indicator shows it as graph, and by clicking this you can read it as value. Not least you could customize indicator-sysmonitor.
