Anyway, I am currently on orcons adsl2 80 gig cap plan, and avg about 50 - 60 gigs a month, went away on the long weekend and when I got back I checked my cap, on Friday Saturday Sunday and Monday my internet had downloaded an avg of 21 gigs aday, now if I had left a download on I would accept it and just pay the bill, but my PC was off over the weekend, so I lodged a ticket Monday night, and still haven't had a response but I just thought some smart bugger had just figured out my wifi password.
so Monday night I disabled wifi on the router and figured the downloading would stop, so got up for work at 7 Tuesday morning all seemed to be running fine, switched PC off and went to work, arrived home at 5 checked usage, in the 9 hours I was at work it had downloaded 8 gigs..... no wifi on so no one could be using it, PC was off completely and my laptop and phone which use my wifi were at work with me. so I rang help desk and got person that I could hardly understand and all he told me to do was turn the modem off for 24 hours, which I did.
turned back on Wednesday and everything has been fine. but the thing is what has gone wrong? helpdesk haven't said anything I haven't received a call or email like I was meant to, (I understand they have other customers) but I'm going to be billed for something that really was out of my control, I do understand how to use P2P programs and all that and the program I use (which I wasn't at the time of this, pc wasn't even on) deletes the torrent after its finished anyway.
so I was wondering since orcon push their own updates to the modem, could have some how got stuck and downloaded uploaded over and over again?, and after resetting the router it fixed the problem?
its just almost 90 gigs over cap, and at 2 bucks a gig, the next bill is going to be a lot more then I was excepting to pay, look forward to reading some of the responses.
EDIT!! plus I have also got a plan change in the works switching to VDSL Saturday 25, would this some how affect my usage?
