      I dread to think what I could do on SFUP!
      Exactly. I am not sure how I should be feeling when I know I was downloading more on Sky Broadband Unlimited than what others think is a lot on SFU

      The really weird thing is ... my other half mentioned yesterday that it's a lot noisier since having SFU installed. That might be something to do with the NAS drive working overtime

      Hmmm... you could relocate it to somewhere else in your home.

      My VMWare server lives in the office. Though, the stock AMD CPU cooler is pathetic in this heat and makes more noise than usual.

      My main PC has a Corsair H50, might be time to invest in a second one...

      No need to check no but I would be interested to see what goes on with the Sky Box and my connected TV. So it is just not possible with the new router to track any of this traffic?

      No, even with Netmeter or similar, which has to be installed on each device. You need an upmarket router to give you totals.
