I would desperately like an easily configurable monthly bandwidth/traffic counter.

More and more people (like me) now have data caps imposed by their ISP's. While the traffic monitoring on my RT2600AC is generally excellent, the ability to choose a date, an amount of data, and count down as data is uploaded and downloaded by the router would make life so much easier.

EG: on the first of the month, reset my data allowance to 1 Terabyte and count down towards 0 MB as data is used.

Having this as a feature would be a good selling point as the other manufacturers either lack a bandwidth counter entirely or are artificially limited (Netgear routers can count down from a max of 999,999 MB.)

I have a request, SRM updates? The last update was 1.1.6-6931 Update 3 back in February. I guess the programmers are on a long vacation or doing something else. I guess Synology ran out of ideas. Perhaps the router business was not good for them.

Depends on your point of view. Having many updates in a short period of time doesn't have to be a positive thing.

Well, they were putting out almost monthly updates then suddenly it stops. A long period of time and no updates can be a negative thing. Like you said, it can be all in the point of view.
