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.

Bell - The Stuxnet of Billing ???
| 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.
