Is there a way to monitor internet data usage through the older Belkin model routers?
The admin page for mine doesn't offer that option, and my ISP's data meter is showing some unreasonably high usage lately. I'd like to compare my own logs to theirs, and have too many devices on the network to track their usage individually.

Kindly provide the model number and current firmware of your router.

Normally they the belkin routers don't have those features (especially the older ones). But some of the newer ones have some of that functionality. If you want some of that functionality try and see if your router is capable of doing dd-wrt. They have features in the dd-wrt that will allow you to do some throttling and some QoS (quality of service) which should help with the high bandwidth users. Sometimes it might be a virus or worm that is installed that can cause high bandwidth usage. It might be worth just running a virus scan on all computers to confirm its not that.
