      That is true unfortunately. The SkyUser Bandwidth Meter (open beta) can also distinguish between LAN and internet traffic, but some have found that it will only work on the first PC connected. I don't know if anything has been done to fix this.

      Re: New Usage Calculator

      We're on the free (2GB) package and with two days left of the current period were at about 1.9GB. We were out all day yesterday and now the usage meter says 3.5GB.

      Guess we'll get a "yellow card" in the post ...

      Is your wireless connection secure? You may have a 'pig' on your back.

      I think it is mainly the Base users who are going to be caught out with this. Many have been exceeding their limit for years. 2Gb is not much these days with Youtube and other streaming sites gobbling up the bandwidth. I am afraid for many of them, the free lunch is over.

      If WPA2 PSK is secure, then yes.

      You can't do much better than that for a home network. Maybe you should query the figure with Sky?
