No doubt. You can trust your router. I, on the other hand, don't have that available. I was curious about the Glasswire vs Hughesnet, but now that I've looked further, I'm much more interested in the Hughesnet vs Hughesnet difference. Again, though, I'm glad I'm not trying to figure this out due to there being some type of data usage problem or something. It's actually more comical than anything. In the end, I go by what the front of the status meter says before anything else, and if it says 688MB combined since 12AM on the 4th, then that's what I'll trust. That, at least, always matches what the SCC and the sign in page show. Looking at the breakdown is something I should avoid and try not to reconcile. It might give me a headache trying to figure out why it's different.
Interestingly enough, though, the usage history matches Glasswire, for the most part. But again, I'll go by the "front" of the meter. It's what I always have, and ultimately what Hughesnet goes by, too.
Maybe. I'm not really sure. But, like I mentioned in a post up the page, I'll ultimately worry most about what the usage says on the "front" of the meter, which matches the SCC and the sign on page. That's what Hughesnet goes by when determining your usage, so the breakdown shouldn't matter.
But, with that said, even if Glasswire doesn't match what Hughesnet says is my total usage thus far for the month, it's still a great tool to use if I ever have some unexplained rise in data usage.
Maybe the total usage, as in the front of the meter, the SCC and the sign on page is the actual data usage, and the Hughesnet usage history and Glasswire are the uncompressed data throughput, or what it would be if not compressed? Hmmm.
With regard to this particular instance, my setup is pretty simple. A desktop and the modem. No router.
In the end, though, all I really care about is what my overall usage is, according to Hughesnet, so I just use one of the three ways of looking at it for that. I normally don't bother looking at the usage history breakdown, nor Glasswire itself. I keep Glasswire for the sole reason of being able to see what is going on if, in the future, I have an instance of high data usage. At least I will be able to get some idea of what it is doing it.
I just found it interesting that the Hughesnet data usage, the Hughesnet usage history breakdown and Glasswire are all so different from each other. Again, though, all that matters is what the "front" of the Status Meter says, and by that, I'm in great shape.
