In the end, the data can only be going "poof" in two places:
The Hughes end
The above modem isolation test is used to determine if data is being used by the modem while it is connected to the Hughes Gateway but isolated from your "network"
If no data is used during isolation then we must conclude the loss is on your end by one or more of your computers, devices or even your router itself as far as that goes.
The more complex the Network, the more potential "leaks" there are.
The presence of a Router really complicates the troubleshooting process because not only can the router itself have vulnerabilities (WPS and firmware "loops") but it is a LAN "multiplier" for the wired side but the wireless portion is of special concern.
You MUST take your Network from this:
A single computer connected directly to the Hughes Modem
Follow the LAN Disconnect procedure from Brandon's post from a week ago.
Note the times of disconnect and reconnect, get screenshots of your usage meter at those times.
If usage is noted while the LAN cable is disconnected, post that info here and the Mods will Validate the usage and disconnection period through the modems internal logs.
If no usage occurs during isolation then each device, ONE AT A TIME needs to be investigated to determine just what program or process on what computer is using the data.
One computer, connected directly to the modem ....
Download and install GlassWire on that computer:
Set up GlassWire in this manner:
GlassWire can only monitor the usage used by the single computer upon which it is installed.
It can not monitor usage by the wireless part of your router hence the need to bypass the router completely during the troubleshooting phase.
Each wire computer in turn, one at a time must be checked.
Each computer should have its fully updated A/V program do a manual scan.
Each computer should have a malware scan done with the free version of Malwarebytes.
Only get Malwarebytes from the publisher ..
The free version is fine.
Once all wired computers have been tested we can proceed to the more involved wireless side of the network.
If you are unwilling to disconnect your router to troubleshoot then you might just as well live with the data loss as you will just be wasting your time without a Divide & Conquer approach.
Here is some info on interpreting the GlassWire results:
You really have to wonder when user posts in such a state of desperation and then drops replies in other topics but is unable to lift a finger to respond to their own issue.
Here is a case in point ...
This user posted 15% data loss.
I posted what I thought were some detailed instructions to help "stem the flow" and yet ... nothing.
Now here is my usage meter:
Does it not seem, that considering the great degree of disparity, that said user would be clamoring all over this threat in an effort to find out what he is doing different than what I'm doing ?
There was no rudeness posted, there was however some factual information posted that could help the OP (as well as yourself) get a better understanding on how to limit a data loss problem.
Here is a fact for you:
A single computer has 65,536 comm ports ... this is again 65,000 + areas for "leaks", there is only one (1) on the Hughes end. It is a simple process to determine if it is on the Hughes end.
It is a "process of elimination" and that process starts with ruling the Hughes equipment in or out.
After that its a matter of tracking down what is using what.
There are "tools" and process to do just that.
Now, I have to ask you, it may NOT be what you want to hear, but just where is the "rude" in what I posted ?
