    Default Internet usage.

    Hi Aii.
    How can I monitor the Internet Usage on this computer only? On W10, I can bring up data used for the last 30 days, About 20 GB. I dont believe this is all mine. There are otherusers in this Rest Home, including the office. I wonder if what I am seeing is the router usage. Thanks. PJ

    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    One program I use is very accurate, you can get it as a portable or full install, right hand side of the page. Its called Networx https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/

    It used to be free but now its a 30 day trial. When you run or install it, click on the icon in the task bar / Icons and it shows in real time, it shows real time, by the day, week and month.

    Here for example I just ran it and its been running for about 2-3 minutes:

    I had Networx installed when it was free. I compared the two. W10 shows 26.03gb WiFi SJHC last 30 days.
    Networx shows total of 11.4gb. All users combined(John), per month. Can I assume that W10 is the whole rest home at the router, & Networks is only me? Thanks. PJ

    Thats a very old version that may or may not have compatibility problems with a newer OS. If you try to upgrade to the latest it goes to the 30 day trial.

    Nope - it's just you.
    You would need to log in to the admin section of the router to get the total usage (and I doubt that is left open in such a situation).

    Wonder if your Win 10 is continuously trying to update and failing, mine was doing that and using about 8Gig every two days.

    Type winver into Start/Run dialogue and see if it is on Win 10 ver 1903 or not if not what version is it on.

    If you don't know how to do that there are other ways of finding that information which can be posted here but the way above is the quickest I think.
