I have a tp link modem and multiple device connected to it. I want to see which device is eating up all the bandwidth and crossing my data limit. How can I see that?

I have my mobile phone, pc, laptop, tablet all connected to it. If I can see which device used how much bandwidth or total data, I can judge by that. Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question.

The hardware version of your modem router is V3 where as you are checking the document of hardware V1. Please have a look on the document of V3 hardware. It seems that the feature is not available with hardware V3.

  • So, it seems that Indians are provided with a cut down version of the hardware and software to reduce the cost. :( Mar 22, 2015 at 11:35

How do I view data statistics on TP Link TD-W8968 router?

Choose menu "System Tools" → "Statistics", and then you can view the statistics of the modem router, including total traffic and current traffic of the last Packets Statistic Interval.

Enable or Disable. The default value is disabled. To enable it, click the Enable . If it is disabled, the function of DoS protection in Security settings will be disabled.

The default value is 10. Select a value between 5 and 60 seconds in the drop-down list. The Packets Statistic interval indicates the time section of the packets statistic.

Source User Manual, p94:


I am not able to find the menu "System Tools

What I have is Device Info, Quick Setup, Operation Mode, Advance Setup, IPTV, Wireless, Guest Network, USB Settings, Diagnostics, Management, Logout."

Try looking "Device Info" > "Statistics" > "LAN"

Note:

  • You may have firmware that is newer than the v1.0 in the linked user manual with a different menu layout.
  • You may have firmware that is for a specific market or ISP that doesn't log this information.

  • Ok, that one shows how much transferred through WLAN0 (Wireless), but doesn't show which device did it or which IP did it. Feb 20, 2015 at 13:11

  • <Shrug>. I've no idea why your TP Link TD-W8968 is so different compared to the manual. Are you sure about the model number?
