Re: Bell Usage Meter counting LAN data?

Yeah, I don't know if it's even possible. What I'm saying is I can't imagine how Bell would see internal lan traffic otherwise. The device has nothing to do with measuring or calculating usage. That's done on a separate piece of equipment far from the user's premises.

This just doesn't make any sense on a lot of levels.

But I will say this. If an ISP was able to cook up some scheme to measure lan traffic and bill the user for it... I would surely expect Bell to be the first, and the leader, in such an endeavour.

Well I am home, quickly hooked up my DD-WRT and got the house back online. Usage is "normal" and the last 5+ GB day was the 14th when I transfered a file from my NAS to my Desktop.

I remember questioning why my desktop was directly connected to my PPPOe and the 2-wire also was? I am curious if this appears as 2 connections through Bell and they tag my bandwidth?

anyways, I am maxed out for the month and will wait until the 27th to reconnect my 2-wire and prove out my theory.

Open to any other ideas.

Are you suggesting the data goes from your home, to Bell, then back to your home again? Wouldn't the data be counted in your Upload data usage in that case?
