My data usage has exploded and I don't know why!
Is there a way to see exactly how much data each device connected to my home network uses? I have a Netgear C6300BD combo. I've gone through as many of those settings as I could understand, but it doesn't tell me much, because I have no idea what I'm looking at. I've also combed through the cox website and support forums, and I haven't seen this issue.
Here's my problem:
From February to March, I used about 156GB of data, which has been about my normal monthly usage. From March to April, it was 238GB. But from April to May, my usage skyrocketed to 822GB!! And again this month, with 3 days left in the cycle, I am at 800GB! I don't have more than 6 devices that connect here, and they're mostly smartphones.
I've also noticed in the last two months my WiFi connection drops, then immediately reconnects. It happens about every 15-20 minutes for hours, then it stays connected with no drops for days, then starts again.
I'm frustrated, and I just don't know what to do anymore.
I've been with Cox for over two years, and I've had the normal frustrations that customers have with big companies, but it's starting to get out of control. I feel like as the prices rise, the service demenishes.
Please help me figure this out. Thanks.
