Download this excel file: http://mentalindustries.orconhosting.net.nz/cap.xlsm
Only works for office 2007
Only works for the torrent usage plan.

You need to enter a number into B1 Peak Data Cap based on what you want to use eg 10 for 10GB or 20 for 20GB etc.

Add the path you save the file to as a trusted location.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HA100319991033.aspx

Change the default security settings so you dont get bugged each time you open the file.
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/HA100651761033.aspx

and allow macros - the code of the macro is at the bottom of the post
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA100310711033.aspx

now the tricky part

go to http://tools.perceptus.ca/text-wiz.php?ops=9

and type in your xnet account password.
This will then give you the MD5 hash you need.
this website does nothing other than give you the md5 hash of your password, use any other method to get it if you wish.

Now open the Xnet xml sheet.
click Data -> from web
as the address enter:

changing putting in your username and the md5 hash you made before.
https://accounts.xport.co.nz/xml4.cgi?username=USERNAME@adsl.xnet.co.nz;token=MD5hashfromabove

click go
then import
when asked click A2 cell and click ok.

now check that the cells on the Xnet Usage sheet have vaild numbers in.
you may need to manually edit the number on the end to select the correct row.

You should now be getting some awesome useful information like below

macro script in the file is:
Sub Auto_Open()
'
' Auto_Open Macro
'
'
   ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll
End Sub

The macro basically presses the refresh button on file open for you.

If you want other plans added need to send me the output of the xml and what plan you are on so I can figure out whats different.


Disclaimer:
If anything goes wrong its not my fault.
The prices so have been correct for me, however any changes xnet make will not automatically be reflected in this spreadsheet.
For your current bill please login to the xnet account manager.


Thanks

I haven't been able to try your instructions since I'm not on torrent, but what an awesome resource - thanks for providing it!!

Hopefully XNet will be able to provide you with some acknowledgement.

Thanks maverick.


There is a problem with off peak data calulation!!!
I'm working on it now

EDIT:
Problem is hopefully fixed (will keep an eye on it for the next day or two.

Please download and replace your copy or
in cell R29 replace the formula with
=IF(HOUR(G1)<8,((B9-1)*8)+HOUR(G1),((B9)*8))

replacing the formula is the easist option (saves you having to setup the external data again).

found another problem.

change R24 formula to =B5*16
and R28 formula to =B5*8

I had it using days left in month to calculate the total hours in month.

The download it not fixed will need to manually edit it yourself.
