Just curious! what does the bites received and bites sent signify?
I understand the connect thing connecting at 48.000 or 46.000.
i connect at both usually - one or the other with no difference in speed of downloading

the bytes sne t and recived are a total of data sent and recived between your computer and your ISP (the internet).

every time you click on a link of a web page a few bytes are sent to request the page in question.
then the web server send back the web page of many hundred bytes.

if you download MP3's then you will have lots of bytes recived.

if you send lots of email then you will have lots of bytes sent.

the numbers are only a total for the current session.

hope this explanes it ok.
