Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

ASUS is pretty good stuff. We have a bunch of it.  I have an ASUS router too. I got it to give my tried and true antique a rest and put it into emergency reserve back-up status. Mine has most of the things you mention but not the traffic analyzer. Considering I paid $6.49 after discounts, promotions and the rebate, I guess I'm OK with that.

Re: ASUS router RT-AC68U

Yes I know how bad cloud can be on data use.  But I have "unlimited data" between 2 am and 7am.  Setting the upload to only be active during those hours is no problem for me.  I do have oodles of large USB drives and gosh oodles of backup hard drives.  I even keep a master copy in a fire proof save.  LOL  Still paranoid of losing thousands of purchased embroidery files and archived photos/documents.  Never hurts to have yet one more backup....which is free from threat of hurricanes, tornadoes, and fires.  ROFL  Once data is uploaded it most probably will not come down again unless my "earthly" backups fail completely.

Opps, I forgot you were on a legacy plan !

Could you post a screenshot of the area of the GUI that shows the "data used per device" ?

yorkytime, your devices also have to be ac 5Ghz capable to use that band. Most older devices are not dual-band, most newer ones are. I love the 5 GHz ban for in-house streaming, seems much better to me anyway. Plus the dual-ban lets me pretty much have the wife on the 2.4 band and I use mostly the 5 band.

This is two images of ONE page.  Shows all client traffic.  Below is device list with MB download per device.  Below can see each device by selecting the name...then you see all webpages accessed for that single device.  I know there are different settings but I have not investigated those yet.
