I am just uncomfortable not knowing exactly who is sending me stuff and where the traffic is coming from. Not having absolute control over MY MACHINE makes me very unhappy and "slightly" paranoid. I guess I shall continue to unplug the internet cable when I am not actively wanting to use it. A real PTA.I don't think that is something to get worried about. As long as your computer is connected to the internet (wired or wireless) there will be some sort of activity there all the time. In my case, I have NAS that always connects to my PCs and some programs looking and notifying me for updates like Avast and Malwarebytes online protection. That's the activity I am getting in my network.
