i bought a new internet connection (fibre), and i use the router/modem/AP/switch all in one given by the ISP

 

i have only 100GB to work with and using more than 100GB will cost me more!

how can i set a limit? (not for LAN, only for the internet)

Never seen quota settings in router that the ISP gives you. Usually the modem/router given by the ISP is crap.

Check around the UI and see if there is any way to limit. If not then there isnt any.

Just search everything sometime settings are buried in the most unlikely place
