    Hiya

    On of one my machines, the connection properties for my LAN shows activity in Bytes (Netgear NIC), while on another machine, it shows activity in packets (Intel NIC).

    Is there any way to change this on either of them? I'd honestly prefer to see bytes rather than packets.

    TIA

    This is driver related. I'm guessing your Netgear drivers are not the original Windows driver? Some companies let their drivers display bytes instead of packets. There's nothing you can do about it.

    Yeha, you're right. The Netgear drivers are from the manufacturer. Well, thanks for the info, it was what I suspected, so I'm off to find drivers that give me what I want :)

    Thanks again.
