Or time for new glasses! BTW, that thing looks like some kind of space ship. Bet it is really nice. My poor man's RT-AC56R has been working well in 1500 sq/ft single story home.

I put on a different pair of glasses (Bee goggles?) and connected the new router.

Really sweet interface but you do have to go through the menu choices carefully.


I opted to not enable the Sync and Remote Access features:

It just opens up to many back doors to suit my taste.


Nor did I enable any of the "AiProtection" features because they access data bases in real-time. I may enable later just to gauge the performance hit and data usage.

These features could also be source of "missing data" as they wouldn't show up in Glasswire or any other monitoring software. It will be interesting to see how this work out and if the Traffic Monitor recognizes the router itself as a "client" consuming data.


Different traffic analysis displays:

Overall:


By device:


By application per device:


Definitely the tool to have for those that are missing data and are unwilling to breakdown their network.

I have the same stuff on my "cheapo" model and turned those same features off. Don't want anything that lets the router send and receive things behind my back.

The usage tools are sweet and has allowed me to know exactly where my data is going.

Remaining data:

The router does list itself as a client in the list of devices:
