Now a believer in data drain

Re: Now a believer in data drain

Hello GetSatMan,

an identification mechanism (if only what LAN IP was responsible-for-which Downloads) into their modems

This is something that was discussed here recently. While we may not be able to show what LAN IP performed what download, individual identification of devices connected looks very promising for us.

That is good news Amanda! I have yet to determine for sure what caused the sudden drain in my case. Really don't think it was the TV after further research but the individual identification feature would be a HUGE step forward.

Thanks Amanda, I have Networx installed but sadly, as you say, no way to monitor external devices. It did not show the high usage. If the feature you mention above is implemented ti would be very helpful indeed. I don't really want to buy s $200 router to do it.  Smiley Happy

sgoshe,

I had this bookmarked - maybe it can help you without needing a fancy piece of equipment. https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/manual/router_monitoring.htm

Thanks again Amanda. I'll give the UPnP a go for awhile. Seems like it gave me some bogus info the last time I tried it. Maybe the operator though as was back when I first started using it.

My router doesn't support SNMP.  Smiley Sad

Do you by chance have a Dish Network Hopper receiver? We just had one installed yesterday, connected it to Wi-Fi, and I noted that the Hopper has a mind of its own, with a constant (but very small) traffic of inbound packets. Still researching, but this is yet another culprit.

Thanks, but no. I think if it was on my end it was the TV but no record of it. Hopefully turning on the UPnP as Amanda suggested below will work. Will probably be a couple days before I can see the data and know for sure.

Charles,

The problem is your old B&W only has 75 ohm twin flat lead-in connectors.

He needs something from within the last 35 years or so. Smiley Happy
