ok here is the thing, my internet always transmit. I cant notice a difference in the speed unless I play a video, or listen to streaming audio. What could keep my internet sending something all the time? I have checked it, I can have everything closed and it does it.

EDIT: I just did the speed test im normally 2-3mb/300k Down/Up now its: 170k/434k big difference.

If you are connected to the Internet, even though you do nothing, there is always some "handshaking" traffic going on between the ISP's server and your computer. I am not sure I understand, though, how this would effect the download speeds for certain files, or how this would effect your playing of a file, if that is your question. What happens when you log off, or disconnect completely, from the Internet?
Regards,
John

Right I know that where ever 5 or so seconds it will automaticly transmit and recieve. but Im talking about constantly, it will stay lit up. I look at my modem and the transmit light is going crazy. I disconnect and it stops even with other computers plugged in. The computer will NOT stop transmiting. I just disconnected this one and did a speed test 2.3mb/543k average speed.

"I disconnect and it stops even with other computers plugged in..."
Is this computer on a LAN? What kind of firewall are you using? Have you scanned this computer for malware?
Cheers,
John

I have 2 desktops using Wired LAN, then 2 Laptops using wireless. Im having problems with one of the ones on wireless. I cant get to my router to plug in directly. I have Windows Firewall, McaFee, Firewall thats on my router, and firewall made into my modem. "What I meant by I disconnect and it stops even with other computers plugged in.. " Its only this computer. The others dont do it. Yes I did scan for malware with McaFee and AVG Free Both came up with no infections.
