Any idea why this is happening? Do VPN's actually use double the usage or is this some sort of mistake?
Just left Utorrent to download for a few minutes to get some statistics and
What Utorrent reports:
I used two network usage monitoring programs Networx and Bitmeter.
What Networx Reports:
What Bitmeter Reports:
Statistics from my modem: (I disabled wireless and any other computing accessing the router and reset the statistics before doing this.)
Recieved: 3123159 Bytes (2.97MB)
Transmitted: 22473096 Bytes (21.43MB)
Recieved: 22420320 (21.38MB)
Transmitted: 3158832 (3.01MB)
Screenshot of modem statistics:
What does WAN mean? Should I add Ethernet and Wan up to get a total? Any idea why my modem is reporting that Ethernet has only received 2.97MB and Sent 21.43MB? Shouldn't it be the other way around?
I disabled monitoring of my usual network adapter, so it only monitors the Virtual one for the VPN and this has not solved the problem.
haha the more I look into it the more confused I get
