So... my ERL is showing that I've transmitted ~845TB on my WAN port:

 

 

Now I do have gigabit cable and I do use a lot of data but nowhere near 850TB, only like 10 - 20TB. The router has only been online for about 2 weeks.

I'm just wanting to know if this is something I should be concerned about or is this just a UI/firmware bug etc?

Is it somehow possible its measuring all the traffic coming over the cable modem? (like its counting all the traffic coming over the node)

I'm not familiar with the inner workings of DOCSIS so I wouldn't know.

 

I wonder if this is somehow related to how I have to power cycle the modem at least once a day. Then again, it has not done this during the several months I've had the ERL.

Would be interested to know more if anyone is able to test this theory just for lols, kinda would explain the various threads about routers locking up in some areas.
