That amount traffic definably is not correct. There is no one using the
link at the moment, and it's only an ADSL line 1024/256. So it can never
ever produce these kind of figures (I which it could though :)

The router is connected to a switch, so it will only see broadcast
I'm monitoring broadcast at another machine and there is nothing. (at
not 1.5MB worth of traffic :)
