    I had a quick question about Bandwidth Usage because I've been reading a bunch of posts in various places and have become confused as to what exactly I'm monitoring.

    I'm looking at the monitor over the last 3 days and I've used about 8 gigs on two different days and 3 gigs so far today since midnight. Now, I did download two 5 gig files a day or so ago, so Im not entirely sure where those numbers fit in...but I'm still confused. I have two different netflix devices, a Roku and my Xbox, and thats all I've been using today.

    My question is this...when I see those numbers, are they actually the numbers that count towards my comcast 250gb limit? As in, if I used 8, 8, and 3, thats 19 gigs subtracted from my 250gb limit, or does comcast see the data in a different want?

    I've never even thought about monitoring bandwidth before, but now that two different players in my house are streaming netflix, I'm worried about hitting that 250 gig limit, especially if your average netflix movie is like a gig or two.

    Thanks for anyone who can answer.

    Does not have Comcast a login page where you can see your bandwith statistics?
