Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hello,

 

I recently set up my TP-Link Deco Whole Home Mesh WiFi System (Deco M5) and it has been good in terms of WIFI coverage but the fact you can't see the data usage each device is responsible for is a big hit to its usefulness in my case. We have a data cap so it's important we monitor what devices/IPs are using the most data over a timeframe of week/month. The fact that this feature is missing may lead me to send the product back and use my old router (which I do not ideally want to do) or simply have my old router into the modem and the Deco into the router, which is not ideal either.

 

Is this a feature in the works? I feel like since you can monitor device usage up to the minute, this would not be a stretch feature correct?

 

Would like to hear updates and feedback from others.

 

Thanks,

Eric

Hi Eric.  At this time that is not something the Deco or its software can do.  We can and will forward this to our PM as a suggestion though.

@Carl Thanks! I think we need to contact the PM because this would be a huge boost.

Hello Carl, i hope it is not the first time you "send this feature request to your Product team", people on this forum are asking for this feature since WWII

@Bobrovsky @Carl  I also need this feature.

 

How the product team didn't think about this basic feature while you are delivering real time device wise speed.

@EricDalrymple : I'm sure TP link doesnot care about its customers

@saran well I certainly hope they do, this should be a top priority for them. Especially when you consider how they are already tracking several different metrics and have an app.

@Carl 

Hi, it is indeed very disappointing that TP Link Deco does not have this feature of tracking data usage by devices. This is something even cheap devices have. Can we expect this feature in the next update? Expected date?

I am very hopeful for getting the Data usage feature in near future as they have recently added AES security in deco devices.

No you should not expect it and certainly not that quick.  We have not been told if that is going to be a feature or not.  We have provided the request but at this point there is no further information available.
