      Can you view the amount of data wirelessly transferred?

      In the router statistics, noticed it says WLAN(wireless)?
      And in the txt packets column i have 16647.
      Even tho i haven't used wireless?

      Is that normal, or is someone trying to/gaining access to my broadband through the router?

      Hmm, so something/someone accessed it? As the packet count had gone up, yesterday it was on 176, today its on 16647.
      I'd like to know how it was accessed tho, its protected, WPA-PSK...
