    I have a wireless broadband from my provider. Back their router I have the ASUS 68U Asuswrt-Merlin ver. 384.13 with vpnserver (openvpn). As the monthly datause is limited (50 GB) I try to follow up my use once a week. Today I discovered 8 GB use through only two hours. This is not normal and should not be possible as I only use the broadband and vpn to watch my webcamera now and then. In fact I couldn't use more than 1 GB an hour with my setting if I watch online.

    This high unknown data use has happend two or three times the last two years and now I am very keen for investigate it hoping to find the reason.

    The Traffic Analyzer on the ASUS show only 2-300 MB the same period, but I am aware of that my wireless broadband can double that due to vpn etc. The wireless broadband router is set to bridge.

    Her is the log from the asus and I hope someone can point out possible reason for the high data use. I have hidden the real ip and user and shortened the log where nothing happen.
