I use a free program called 'Networx' to keep an eye on what data is going in and out of my computer on a wireless network provided by the building where I live. There are times when network traffic is going and coming almost at the rate provided by this wireless network even when I'm not using it. I do understand that my anti-virus provider sends me updates throughout the day. But who else is getting data from and sending data to my computer when it appears to be otherwise idle. Also, is there any way I can find out who is transmitting to me and to whom I am transmitting?
