Usage depleted overnight. All updates set during free time.

Re: Usage depleted overnight. All updates set during free time.

If you have not already done so you really need to get down to a single connected computer directly to the modem and eliminate the router altogether as suggested somewhere above.  That will let you know with absolute certainty that no one or nothing (like other wireless devices in your own household) is "mooching bandwidth". Then and only then can you troubleshoot what programs on that one computer might be the culprit.  Just my two cents Smiley Happy

Not sure I completely understand the Check usage on the performance test page.  For the the hours 7:00 am to 9:00 am my glasswire programs said 75 MB used on my computer. My husband used his computer during those hours, browsing the web shopping for tractor parts, no videos. The check usage tab on Hughsnet performance page said:  7:00 to 8:00 Min Used 60, Download in MB 176.9 Upload 2.34 and from 8:00 to 9:00 Min used 60, Download 156.22 and Upload 0.75
This morning refilled to 81%.  Opened IE and then ESPN and immediately dropped to 74 %

Have you tried eliminating the router and connecting just a single computer to the modem to see if the bandwidth drain continues in that configuration?

Lea,

Near the top of this page you said your husband had a work phone that had to stay connected.

Do you have a VOIP unit between your modem and router or modem and computer if you have eliminated the router? If not are you talking about using a Smart phone ( your husband's work phone) to connect to the web via your router?

No VOIP.  He has an Iphone that is connected to wifi through our router.  It has been connected for 10 months with no problems.

You said you and your husband both have I phones.

The I0S8 update released on 17 September is 1.1 GIG. Did either of you install the update using your internet connection?

No updates for me.  I think he started and it failed a few days ago.  He still has 7.  I'll let him know that if he does get it that he needs to do it during free time or at work.

That still doesn't explain my meter starting at 81% at 7:00 am  and dropping to 74% At 7:05 am just clicking on IE and then ESPN.

It just dropped from 60% to 58% by posting the two comments above.  That is all I have done.  Is that normal?

Lea,
Did you just wake up the computer from sleep or hibernation when the meter showed 81%?  If so please keep in mind that the meter "sleeps" or hibernates in its current state right along with the computer.  Once brought out of sleep it will take some time to update itself (I think maybe 5 minutes?) so that it shows a current accurate % remaining.
