    Hello, I recently noticed that my Local Area Connection icon in the notification area is showing me that I am constantly receiving info. I checked all my programs and processes to make sure nothing was using the connection, but it is still receiving. I've tried repairing the connection, disabling it, restarting....everything, but its still constantly receiving. I need some urgent help please because it is taking up most of my bandwidth and causing it to be really really slow.
    Thanks
    Mike

    Yea. When its disabled, obviously the notification icon isn't showing anything, but my router (Westell 327W) is still showing activity on my line.
