So I was correct then when I looked at the usage meter and determined that bonus bytes should have been used rather than anytime? I'm still learning, I had no idea that so many other sources could use data without my knowledge. I checked the back of the modem, the coaxial cable seemed to be very tight but the LAN cable was loose. What do you recommend as far as the direct tv box? I want to be able to watch on demand tv shows occasionally, but I don't know how to stop it from downloading content without my knowledge. Any tips?? Thank you very much!

I think that there is a problem with my account. Each month it seems that I run out of data faster and faster. I have not routinely been monitoring the usage meter because I didn't realize things could use data without my knowledge. I did check my usage on Saturday, 4 days into my billing cycle and was shocked to see that I had already used my entire 10 gigs. It appeared to me though that the usage occurred at 4 am. Over the weekend I read through hours of other community posts and now realized that it was probably the direct tv receiver that used the data. I also did the test of unhooking the router/modem overnight and did not notice any changes in data usage. My concern is that usage at 4 am should have come from the bonus bytes not anytime. Is there a way this could be checked?
