Those figures are quite easily achievable on the service you're on. Are you using the wireless on your router and is it secured with WPA?

Re: Att Adam Walker - Useage

I've noticed exactly they same thing over the past few months. My usage has not changed in fact it's dropped as I do not run two servers which used to run 24 hours yet the graphs show my usage has rocketed. Where as it used to be 4 or 5 Gig a month with servers running now shows up to 25 Gig.

Hi.....................Yes been on FTTC for the last few days and not changed what I do..............I have no PC on 24/7, just the
Plusnet router and BT modem......
Downloading is done midnight to 8am on one PC......
So looks like the clock useage is gone wrong.....

Re: Att Adam Walker - Useage

Out of interest, what happened to your old pre-FTTC router?

Re: Att Adam Walker - Useage

Hi all,
When looking at this what category of usage is the majority coming under? (i.e Peer2Peer, web etc)

Re: Att Adam Walker - Useage

Hi Roger,
Queries of this nature do pop up from time to time so I'll go over the usual ground we need to cover. With the majority of the usage being P2P related I think we need to consider router security first. Are you using wireless? if so we'll need to go through looking at your router config and what methods of authentication are being used.
Following that getting some more specific usage data would help. There's a free program called wireshark that should help with this. If you could install this for us and leave it running during the times when you notice an increase in usage. The resulting logs it gives you might not mean much to yourself but if you can get them over to us on a support ticket then we should be able to make sense of them for you: http://www.wireshark.org/

Re: Att Adam Walker - Useage

G3YBO,
the WMR1000v3 has an Internet Traffic Meter option, might be worth turning this on and setting the monthly reset to the same day as your billing Date, this will then show you how much usage your router is seeing so you can compare it to Plusnets count. It will not know about the free hours 12-8 but will show the overall amount, Up and Down.
You can also use it to limit your overall usage, but this is optional.

No problem, just let me know if you need any more support with this or with getting the logs from wireshark over to us. Re wireless, if you are using that you might want to check that the authentication method is set to WPA rather than WEP.
