Win 10 has a built-in data usage feature … shows data from internet on both Ethernet and wifi networks.

 

Where does Win10 get this data from?  Presumably it interrogates the router involved?

Thanks for replies … so it only reports specifically about a single device?

 

What I mean is does the data usage figure shown, for example, on my desktop, also include any other device usage connected to the router (ethernet or wifi)?

It has no idea what router it has connected, nor other clients.

 

 

 

So no.

 

 

 

It is to the device running W10.
