Re: [Extreme] Rogers Bandwidth Counter Incorrect?

Yup quite likely talking out of his butt ... the data tranferred is measured at the "Service Engines" (the dreaded throttling boxes) or at the CMTS routers.

Changing a modem is going to change the MAC of the router, and hence its assigned IP address. So if you have someone doing dos attacks or other such transfers to your IP, it will go away.

This shows that it's basically, externally initiated traffic, not traffic from you.
