I have been having my wife keep a close eye on the Simple Internet Meter because she sometimes reports that we exceeded our bandwidth in a BIG way. This (so far) appears to start going VERY high shortly before or after midnight. So I set it so she could see the Internet Traffic Monitor (we normally are only concerned with bandwidth). She says that last night shortly before midnight the SENT started going up VERY fast. I questioned her to make sure she was NOT watching the speed. She says it was the traffic (Not speed). Now here comes the strange part --- the bandwidth did NOT reflect this big increase.

Any ideas? I trust her observations.

The hardest part is trying to find a problem is seeing it happen, and since I haven't been able to replicate the problem here I was wondering, does see know how to take screen shots by chance?

A screen shot right before midnight and then a screen shot after when it starts growing would help :-)

Have you noticed this on your computer at all or only hers?

This appears to happen only around midnight and I am never on my computer that late -- she's the night owl.

I'll show her how to take a screen shot and we'll see if she can catch it.
