Question about Siemens Efficient Networks SpeedStream 2623 (SS2623) Wireless Router
My bill for internet in the last two months has been way higher than usual due to extra bandwidth usage. We are doing nothing different. I have tried to call Bell and they reset my modem..but it is still bad. The lights on my modem are flashing like crazy and when I do a usage check it shows that the upload is huge.
If you think that someone is using your wireless network then you should make/change your router password, if you dont know how , just search google for it.
