Curse my smart TV !!!!!!

It just sucked 790MB for whatever reason, probably a firmware update, thought I had all that automatic stuff turned off.
I was doing so good with my allowance for the month, no longer.  Smiley Sad
Am glad I have my new super duper router though. Saw exactly what did it.
ANother hard lesson learned.

I downloaded that the other day. Not so bad when expecting it. Don't think the TV downloaded a Windows update.  Smiley Happy
Was the TV for sure. Love my new router which shows usage by device.

I finally decided to do something about not seeing what machine is doing what unless it was just HTTP traffic... Have multiple internet connections, so multiple routers, all on the same network, helps me see who is using how much and where.

Thanks for the post, Sgoshe!

We have a on-going post regarding sources for data usage. Definitely something to add onto..

Yea, not really a Hughes problem, just venting at my own stupidity for letting it happen. Glad I have a router that at least lets me see where it went.

Have a great Thanksgiving and long weekend!
