It is common that ISP set monthly limits on the amount of data for their users, and users who go over that limitation may experience a slower data speed or be charged an overage fee.
The WAN Budget application helps Administrator to manage the data usage in a specific period of time. It allows the administrator to set a quota of traffic for each WAN interface, and the router will send notification message or shut down the interface when the quota is exceeded.
To set up WAN Budget for a WAN interface, go to WAN >> WAN Budget. In General Setup, click on the WAN interface you would like set a budget.
To monitor the current traffic, go to WAN >> WAN Budget. In Monitor Page, Administrator could check the usage of each Interface.
Please note that the traffic counter will be reset when:
However, reboot the router, restore configuration or upgrading firmware with ".all" file will keep the traffic count.
