Hi,

How can computers that are completely powered off be sending and receiving data according to Networx? These machines are sending and receiving data constantly. And I noticed that approximately every 3 minutes, their stats drop to some lower figure, then start incrementing again.

Is this inflating my totals? Am I getting accurate statistics about my traffic?

I have installed winpcap and am only monitoring internet traffic.

thanks
Tanya

How are you measuring those computers' usage and how are you seeing that it keeps going when the computers are off? Also post some screenshots, so that I could give better advice.
