I am using a wireless modem/router...it's a NetGear MBR1210 from Bell Canada. I do some online gaming. The server we are using for this gaming is using a protocol that required me to have ports opened. My IP would not unblock on their end. So I got a Private Static IP and all is well. The problem is in 10 days I have used 15GB of data. Since I have been playing the same game all along I have never used that much bandwidth.
So my question is this. Is there any way a virus or hacker can be using my IP address and running up my bill? I don't see any traffic on my end while connected to the net. So anything going on would be external.
So what do you think?
