Tried Netflix for the first time yesterday and appears that it's using my broadband data. My setup:
- Netgear CG3000 V2 modem in bridge mode
- Billion 6404vgp router, DNS is set to Optus e.g 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
- wathing via Samsung Smart TV Netflix app
- I'm on the old 120 GB cable broadband plan (50/70 peak/off peak)
I've checked data usage just before watching TV show episode and also once finished - arround 2 GB was added and no other devices at home were using internet during same period. I've read somewhere that you need "compatible" modem for this to work, couldn't find any list which shows which modems are compatible, is my Netgear CG3000 V2 compatible?
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Hi @mukas. The CG3000v2 is certainly compatible and all Netflix content should be unmetered. The only issue that could be a potential cause is the setup that you have with the bridged router and different access point. This may be causing the content to not be recognised as unmetered. You can isolate this by reverting to the standard setup and re-testing for usage.
