    I know about computers but I do not know about networks. I have - through ATT- three ways to access the internet, and it to have it access me, through my modem/router. I have 3 Channels (?), a 2.4 GHz(My SSID), a 2.4 GHz Guest (My SSID-guest) and a 5GHz (my SSID). I have put my MS on the guest network and it seems to be working.

    I just got the latest update (was 7 updates back before SC pushed the latest (at that time) update to my car a month ago. Two nights ago I received the very latest update (2018.24.1 12dd099) so it appears things are working as supposed to. Looking at my modem's software ( 192.168.X.XX) I see that for the Guest network bytes were received and sent. Here's what this looks like:

    2.4GHz Guest ATT2EuR6TX_guest Transmit 1945149050 1694222 1 0
    ATT2EuR6TX_guest Receive 254662809 1056084 0 0

    Why is the Transmit quantity (Bytes) more than the Receive quantity? Shouldn't it be reversed ? more received than transmitted?

    Can anybody help a network clutz?

    The router probably counts from its own perspective, it has transmitted more bytes to wireless clients (the car) than it has received from said clients.

    Most days my Model S transmits much more outgoing then it receives unless it gets an update. Reporting back to the mothership I guess.
