Correct question would be: Do you have daylight saving time settings on your router? If yes (I'm almost convinced it is), the traffic meter would always show nulls. Temporarily disable daylight saving time ... and you will experience the magic. Systematic issue on many if not all Netgear Nighthawk routers.

Hi Siebels24,

 

Have you tried to reset the router?

Really good solution. If checking daylight saving time, I can not see the traffic. If I remove checking, I can see traffic. Thanks.

Re: Traffic Meter not working

More of a workaround I'm afraid. Left some nasty emails with Netgear about this systematic issue (among others) on the Nightawk product line. Not sure if Orbi and Orbi Pro routers are not affected, too. Mills are milling very slow these times - lot of updates need to be inherited these days. The price for working with a lazy OEM and even more lazy product managers at Netgear.

Re: Traffic Meter not working

You're right. It is a workaround; but it solved the problem. Traffic data was intact so it should be relatively easy to solve it definitively. In any case, it's a little stupid that a checkbox for summer time blocks traffic data.
