Sorry, that's B/s. But still, if my last recorded speed had been, say 
100KB/s, it would have shown that.

Yes, PC1 is the machine I'm running MRTG on. It is a normal desktop, so 
its switched off regularly. The way I see it, "the gauge is getting 
stuck" when the PC is switched off.

And about my second problem? It seems like MRTG has now latched onto 
eth1 and the same behavior is being replicated there! Funnily, I'm using 
eth0 for connecting to the net. My setup is in a mess!
