Is there any way to specifiy the best pod for a device to connect to? I have had two pods connected for nearly a year. Right now nearly every device in the house except 2 are connecting to the main router, so the pods are useless. My office computer has a pod plugged in literally right next to it. Instead it's connecting to the upstairs pod across the house. The only thing connecting to the "office" pod is the wireless xfinity tv box we never use (the tv itself is wireless capable and connecting directly to the router). An upstairs bedroom (farthest from the router and with the poorest connection in the house), is closest to the upstairs pod and yet not connecting to it (when my office computer on another floor across the house is).

My XFi app was telling me our "household" profile was using 80% of our internet data (and we go over the cap every month so that's a lot of data). At first I thought someone was piggybacking but higher security and password changes didn't alter it. I finally unplugged the wireless X1 box (even though it had been turned off and no one had used it for days because it's always been frustratingly glitchy) and the high usage stopped. Everything I saw on the internet claimed the box doesn't count against our data unless we're watching an app like Netflix, but if I unplug it the high usage device disappears, if I plug it back in the device data skyrockets even if we don't turn the box on. I assigned the device hogging all the data it's own profile and paused it and that makes the box stop working so I know the device using up so much data is the wireless X1 box. I've left it unplugged for weeks and the data stays down, then plugged it back in (but didn't use it) and had the profile start using all the data again.
