I am facing a horrible issue with my ISP.
They are claiming that my internet consumption is very high. They are charging my around 50$ for extra charge.

My main concern is to have a list of daily visited websites and how many MB or GB that me or my family consumed on like YOUTUBE, CNN, ETFLEX......

I am wondering if I can install the DD WRT on my ADSL router
TPLink Archer D2 DSL Modem Wireless

if your software does not support my router, please inform wit the list of compatible DSL router with DD WRT.


Thank you so much in advance

DD-WRT doesn't support modem-routers for DSL or cable, etc. You would have to buy a DD-WRT compatible wi-fi router and set it up to do what you want and set it up behind your DSL modem and have everything connect to it.

Thank you so much.

I am new to DD-WRT

Do you mean that I have to pay for the software or for the router itself (hardware)?

Can I buy a compatible router then download the software please?

You would have to buy the hardware (router). You would need to check the supported devices list to see what is compatible with DD-WRT:

https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices

And then look for device-specific instructions on how to install the firmware.
