Feature Request: Bandwidth Monitor
With Comcast and others adding bandwidth caps id love to get internal alerts since Comcast numbers are so out of whack.
Network professional here. Really excited for this product, just implemented it in my home. Have it in IP passthrough so I’m not getting stats on my router/modem GUI. Having a bandwidth report, real time usage meter, and highest device usage would be excellent. Really hope this is pursued quickly.
I'd also like some sort of way to track bandwidth, or at least get back to the old iOS View that showed immediate consumption for everything in one shot.
In the current context of Shelter in Place, there's a lot of work being done from home. When my work call suddenly starts dropping packets, I'd like to figure out if issue is due to another device starting a chatty network conversation.
Having little to no visibility into that makes this really difficult to accomplish.
This is the only remaining feature I miss from Google Wifi. If it's not possible with the current generation of devices, I would love an SDK so I can build one for myself.
I need to know how much my bandwidth my NAS device is using per month.
I'm...shocked this feature doesn't exist after two years of discussion. It's clearly already a stat that's tracked; why not make a simple grid table with host and current up/down and a sort toggle for each column?
I thought I'd replace my 1st gen google wifi with eero. This morning I was having some slowness so I went to see which device was consuming the bandwidth and eero can't do this? I mean I suppose I could manually click through each of the 43 devices on my network but...
Guess I'll be returning this and go back to my google wifi.
So in looking for this feature for our next wifi system it seems that Eero is off the list. We currently have an Orbi RBK50 and it also does NOT have this feature. Funny enough, on the Netgear forums there is a thread about just as long as this one. Looks like Google wifi is the only option.
You'd think during this work from home push we've had with the Coronavirus the vendors would push this since so many ISP's have monthly data caps (Cox, Comcast, Frontier, etc). I know Cox is waiving data caps through to 30 June 2020 but I'm sure they'll put them back in place.
Keep up the good fight and push Eero to implement the feature but until then I'll be switching to Google unfortunately
Any update on this feature request?
I'd like to be able to see bandwidth usage per hour, per device if possible in some kind of a chart. This would be helpful to ensure kids are studying when they say they are
Would love to see total bandwidth used passing though the gateway.
I would also love to see total bandwidth by device.
Something like current, aggregated daily, aggregated monthly, aggregated yearly.
That would be great. Also, for eero secure, it would be great to see the sites that were attempted to be accessed in the adult, illegal or violent categories.
I'm working from home as well as streaming all of our TV and security systems through our connection. I have xfinity, which has a hard cap and a fee for overage. If Eero does not introduce this before I get penalized without having a way to track my usage, I'll definitely switch systems.
This was requested and even mentioned that it's being worked on 2 years ago. And still nothing? Unacceptable, especially when the competition had it long ago.
I'm an IT director and will soon be running a mid size business.
Without this feature, my overage charges will be well over $100/month which unfortunately makes the switch to another router that has this extremely basic feature worth it. My old $60 router had it.
So what wifi router did everyone switch over to? From my quick research it looks like the Google Wifi is the only thing to do this, although requires two apps installed on your phone.
Worthwhile to consider the Meraki GO. They have this feature and have really been coming up with easy to manage products and more useful features than eero including 1) ability to control turning off and on 2.4ghz or 5ghz bands. 2) setup up to 4 SSIDs 3) plus much more. Only downside I see are 1) they don’t have a beacon style wall plugin 2) their fastest wifi speeds are equal to beacon with 2x2 antennas only.
Have switched over to the Asus rt-ax88u with RMerlin firmware. Covers my whole house, and has per-client and per-app data traffic statistics while supporting gigabit internet. Also has a nice system log, and I can turn off the 2.4GHz. wireless radio. Solid and stable, with pretty much all the features that were lacking in the eero. Still have the eero, but it's moved to backup position for the time being :-).
Google WiFi has this feature. See https://www.howtogeek.com/297012/how-to-view-your-networks-data-usage-on-google-wi-fi/. People in my community are talking about switching to Google WiFi because they don't know which devices are using all the data and they're about to get cut off due to Comcast's 1TB per month limit, which have been waived during the last few months because of the pandemic, but that's about to expire.
