Hi all.

For the last few days I keep seeing spikes in my data usage during the day when nobody is home and PC is turned off. I've changed password on my Wireless router (WPA2+AES). I just can't explain it.

Only other devices are WDTVLive Hub (witch is turned off in standby mode when not use) and Linksys SPA3202

Turn off the router next time youre out. See if V/fone record any usage then. If they do, then something odd with your line and/or their usage meter.

Something strange is going on.

Wife has been home today doing the usual facebook, email, youtube, phone calls (VoIP) etc. Today's chart is not showing anything.?? I know there is a few hours delay in the data being recorded to update the charts. But err.

I just taken this screenshot at 7:10PM

As above, try powering off your router and see if it continues. Note : Any traffic destined for you (ie:incoming) is counted towards your data cap.
