Bandwidth being presented in reverse

    Hello. I have a Linksys E6900, previously running FreshTomato 2018.5, and I just updated the firmware to 2019.2 in case that might have been the issue, but it still persists. I got dinged by Comcast about going over my 1 TB limit, so I enabled bandwidth monitoring. The monitoring appears to be working, but it seems to be presenting the download bandwidth as Upload and vice-versa. IP Traffic is reporting download and upload properly. Is there a setting that would fix this, or is something else going on?

    Are you definitely looking at the WAN interface?

    The values are reversed on the LAN view, which makes sense when you think about it - data received on the WAN interface is sent to the LAN clients, and vice versa:

    I was looking at the monthly WAN view:

    I just doubled checked. The Real-Time and Last 24 Hours seem to be reporting Rx and Tx correctly. It's just the Daily, Weekly, and Monthly that seem backward to me:

    Weird, the numbers in those tables are definitely the right way round on my R7000.

    I will try an NVRAM erase this weekend and report back.

    After the firmware update, did you reset the router to factory defaults and manually reconfigure?! This is just the kind of wacky stuff you see when someone fails to do so.

    I've occasionally seen quirky stuff when the cstats or rstats or whatever bandwidth monitor is gets corrupt data. Certainly wiping nvram is a good step but if it's still messed up resetting bandwidth monitor's data wouldn't be a bad idea. You could copy the data off to another spot if you want to preserve it in case a reset doesn't fix it.

    I'm wondering if moving the router top side down would help :D
     
    Monk E. Boy and irateb like this.

    Sorry for the late reply. I did not get to do the NVRAM reset yet. I have a bunch of settings configured and haven't documented them yet. I'll assume that is the issue, and I'll let you all know if it doesn't solve it.
