Hi, everybody, to make it short, I've set up a file sharing network between my desktop pc and my mother's laptop with windows XP's manager for that. I was just wondering if that uses some of my wifi data, because I just blew up my internet like 30gb over this month. Also, I have printer sharing enabled on that network.
Please help me because, it's really annoying to blow up my internet limit (only 50gb)
P.S. Hope I was clear, because my main language is french. If, no I'll try to make my question better.

if the network it's always sharing files and internet of course that uses allot of your cap. If you can get an unlimited cap you wouldn't have any problems it doing that ;)

If the 2 computers are both connected to your same network then no it wont use any usage as everything that happens on your network, is well your traffic, internet usage is only things coming in and out between your network and "the cloud". So things that could towards your usage would be well using lockergnome.net, facebook etc. If you stream videos online like youtube or online tv or anything thats has to come to your computer from "the cloud" will use up your data.

Honestly, it doesn't matter if your using wifi or hardware, your ISP can't tell the difference from that, but 30 gig in a month is a very small limiter. Get an unlimited plan so your not on edge. Its not that expensive. Most high speed ISP providers will do a bundle plan like tv phone and Internet.
