[BW Meter] Usage Meter gone?

When I login to my account I can no longer access the usage meter. Has this happened to others?

I'm in the South Florida (former Adelphia) market.

Re: [Caps] Usage Meter gone?

Are you logging in with the "primary" account ? If so, try calling in and asking the rep to "roll and re-provision (APT push)" your modem.

It sometimes comes and goes. Check back in a few hours or tomorrow and it will probably be back.

I have not had mine, since I upgraded to extreme 105 back on September last year.

Mine's been gone for about a year now. I miss it.

Yeah mine has come and gone as well since they first implemented it . Also I've experienced months were it stopped monitoring usage(often like half way through) and doesn't add any more data to the monthly usage. This meter doesn't seem very accurate/reliable so I wouldn't worry about it.

I run Tomato firmware in the router, I use the bandwidth tracker built in. I was watching my bandwidth long before we new there was a cap. Just one other option while you get the online version working...

Yeah routers that support bandwidth tracking is probably the best option. DD-WRT is another good custom firmware. I wish my DIR-655 supported bandwidth tracking or third party firmware which does. In the meantime like Oedipus I pretty much don't worry about the cap anymore. I cant seem to get into my Comcast.net account right now for some reason anyways. I'm sure I've gone way over the past few months though since I don't realy know how much data I'm using anymore.
