Thank you. I'll do the test tonight then. So I just come back to this post after I complete it?

Yep.  Just reply with the times of disconnecting your devices or shutting them down and reconnecting or turning them back on.  That way they can look to see if any data was used or disappeared in between those two times.  Just, again, make absolutely sure that nothing can connect to the service in between those two times.  I'd unplug that XBox just to be safe.  Smiley Happy

Hello

 

I've taken an overview assessment of the data and there does not appear to be any data used during that time frame. I think it is worth while to connect only a device or two back to the network and see if that helps to narrow it down. 

 

If you want to be 100% sure about the devices actually being detected on the HughesNet modem you can view the connected devices by going to

 

192.168.0.1 > WiFi Settings > Login ---- scroll down to "status" and click on "devices". All connected MAC addresses will be listed there.
