Can I put a a download cap on a specific IP or MAC?
I have a Nighthawk X10 R9000 runing Firmware V126.96.36.199. I am trying to see if its possible to limit specific devices to a certain amount af data per month? I know I can limit speeds though QoS (already doing that) but I am looking more to put put a download cap on devices and cut them off if they hit their limit.
Back story: We are somehow hitting our data cap from Comcast. the only thing I can think of is that my kids are dowloading games like crazy and streaming in HD. I've already called comcast and of course, they blamed the router. so here I am
I would appreciate any help or other suggestions

'fraid not. Netgear's parental controls don't go to that level of sophistication.
You may be able to block their access to specific sites, which could be a start.
There is a manual for the R9000 somewhere at the end of this link:
See page 40 onwards.
