The question pretty much says it all - I want to know how much I'm downloading. Also, is there a way to cap my own download speed or total bandwidth consumed in a given period?

Thank you

You could try bwm-ng slacware package. It is a command line tool, looks like can do what you want.

A simple tool to observe your bandwisth is iftop (run as root from console)
you can grab a slack-compatible package here. It was not built under Vector but I guess it will work. To install type installpkg iftop-0.17-i486-1.tgz as root in a terminal
