who's stealing my bandwidth?
Posted by: space-time

I have an Apple Airport Extreme router with a WPA2 password with 31 characters. I doubt someone broke my password. I don't see any strange clients in the logs.

According to Comcast, here is my bandwidth usage

April 35 GB
May 49 GB
June 102 GB
July 156 GB (and 2 days left, probably I am gonna end up with 160 GB)

We stream some netflix, some youtube, no torrents, no ftp. I am puzzled why the bandwidth went up so much, I am afraid I will exceed the 250/month quota in a few months if it keeps going up like this.

I guess I need to insert a DD-WRT device between cable modem and apple router to double check comcast's numbers.

Have you started streaming more Netflix in June and July than past months? HD Netflix gobbles about 1GB per hour. We have three people in the home. If we each watch 1 hour of Netflix video per day, that's 90GB month, assuming HD quality.

well, if you already know the answer, why bother posting in first place when you clearly have more entertaining things to be doing... :-)

Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

Badda-bing, badda-boom, and we have a hat trick!

Loved that song even before I knew about double entendres.

I *wish* my bw figures were that low. Every month about this time I'm anxiously watching the online meter.
