    Home modem shows 870 Mb traffic over two days with no computer!

    Can lounge members help explain these modem traffic figures which seem crazy.

    Background.
    My computer was switched off for two days whilst we were away, but I left the modem ASUS RT-N56U running.
    The modem internal traffic monitor log for these two days shows.
    Sat 11jan14, 10 Mb uplink 520b M downlink
    Sun 12jan14, 10 Mb uplink 330b M downlink.

    These numbers seem amazing for a modem doing nothing but keeping the channel alive.
    Can members explain it or suggest tests I could run to check this further.
    Thanks. Graeme.

    That's your rough up/down bandwidth spec for the time period, NOT actual usage.
