You can get per-IP traffic stats with third-party firmware, Asuswrt-Merlin.  Note, you will lose hardware acceleration, so the max throughput between WAN and LAN will drop to about 450 Mbps.  If you have Gigabit speed Internet, then there may be a noticeable drop in performance.

 

The usual caveat emptor applies for third-party firmware.

Have you enabled Traffic Meter feature on the Router?

Yeah I have but that only gives an overall usage. I want to know how much each device is using

Might try OpenRouter FW as well, however not sure if they support per device stats as it's mostly the same UI. Might beable to though.
