How can I Monitor Traffic by Attached device

I have an ORBI RBK50 with one satellite.  How can I monitor traffic by attached device.  My ISP provider gives me very little bandwith and I have to use it carefully.  If I knew which device was using how much,it would help.  I looked at one solution that appeared to need me installng outside firmware on the router and I do not want to do that.

Unfortunately monitoring how much bandwidth is being used by device is not possible at the momment, I don't believe you can load a different firmware into the device other than the official one.

I really wish Netgear will add the possibility to monitor traffic, and give statistics for each device in the Orbi app.

 

Wishlist for app update:

- total data usage for all devices (day/week/month)

- total data usage pr device (day/week/month)

- current bandwith usage (total/each device)

 

With these features i am able to identify which device use most data, or which device use all bandwith.

I agree that this is a necessary feature. I like the Orbi system a lot, however with its limited ability to accomplish security tasks and analytics is disconcerting.
