Netload shows the current traffic on a connection. This is great and I
use netload in addition to modemlights. 

Modemlights provides
1) a button to press to initiated a connection (say using pon) or to
disconnect a connection. This is useful for dial-up connections. (I have
no experience with ADSL since our lines here are to bad to support it,
but I suspect that you are not manually raise and lower the connections,
so this is of no interest to you.)
2) a graphical representation through 3 icons indicating whether the
connection is up, down or the modem is currently dialing.

So, personally I have the netload applet just next to modemlights since
they together provide all the connection info and tools I need.
