OK just when I thought I had everything settled this happens

Some how I used a full GB of data yesterday when I was watching the news on TV not  smart TV just a regular old TV.  I don't want to hear about upgrades and so forth or any Windows stuff as I do not use Windows at all anymore 100% Linux where I have to authorize any downloads or updates.  I may have used the 200mb during the 19:00 hour as I did upgrade Firefox.

Re: OK just when I thought I had everything settled this happens

Hi Gary,

We can't go back and see what used your gig of data, but what we can do is ensure the HughesNet modem isn't the source of any unexplained data leaks:


Beyond that, I would suggest getting a data monitoring program that could help you look back to see what's connecting to the internet once you have your computer reconnected.

I found a few programs/tips that may be of interest:

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

Thanks,
Liz

The only thing wrong with that answer is I have 3 PCs connected 2 hard wired and one WiFi and it may go for months before it acts up again.  I do monitor my network and server at all times and the modem with SCC screen always on server while using the WiFi PC.  My third PC is in my workshop in another building 75 feet away connected with cat5.  I'll keep an eye on it and don't need your links I know what I am doing.  I have been a Technician for many, many, many, years and do monitor usage inside terminal.  I was just wondering if anything shows on your end. Anyway thanks for the useless tin can reply.

I do monitor my network and server at all times 
So, do you have the data for these hours?

That is what is strange nothing abnormal shows up.

So if you look at a full network traffic monitoring tool for upload download and intranetwork chatter, there is nothing used? Do you have screenshots for these hours?

Thanks

Re: OK just when I thought I had everything settled this happens

Don't worry about it I'll do some checking to see what I can find.  I have been working at the Shop today and haven't had much time to check.  It could be something in my workshop PC been to cold to go out there and check but it is supposed to be nice for the rest of the week upper sixties.  I'll do some more checking if I have time I just wanted to know if remote diagnosis showed any problem inside modem.  I can't get any information past the router it stops there at the input and this cheepo router is limited on diagnosis.  If nothing else I will bypass the router and tunnel through the server with my CISCO HUB.  That way I will have the whole LAN monitored at once hard wired to the modem.

Mystery solved my Granddaughter was using the WiFi on her Smart Phone and her IP wasn't configured into the system so I didn't see it.
