Maybe someone's hosting torrents? Or it could be b0tz. Or pr0n. Or both. Fun stuff. Seriously though, if one or two windows machines that are crapped up with spyware are running off that network then I'd say the numbers are in no way surprising.

After all this discussion of possible metering on TWC I decided to check the
stats on my public router on at the outer banks (the public wi-fi network -
I figured, if any network, a public one would have a lot of bandwidth eaten
up). What I found was interesting:
In/out packets 44281817/56033743 (1.86 GB/3.83 GB)
'cuse me? More outbound than inbound? This particular modem has a 3/1
connection so the outbound is faster than most however I still would have
thought, over 60 days, the download would have been much higher than the
upload. I wonder if the counters wrapped.
What think yee?
