My usage is high. I have followed all the steps to reduce the need to use a large amount of data. I think someone is not following my rules :o(

I just chatted online with them and discovered it was my Directv. I had to disconnect it. It was eating up 10 gig a night...

The best way to see who, what and when data is being used is to get a third party router with traffic management or monitoring built in. I use an ASUS RT-AC3200 router. There are many other good routers available to do this. The Viasat built in routers have limited function, and a WiFi signal that is not nearly as strong as most third party routers.

As Steve notes, you really need a more robust router if serious about this... the Viasat routers are very basic devices.

I guess I can get my old router out and hook it up.

Logging into the Viasat router will tell you what devices are connected but not how much data each is using.

Look under Wi Fi then connections. Each router menu is different and can't remember exactly but it is there. If not there then maybe DHCP connections.

Your old router might not help as not all have traffic analyzer.
