 Subject:  interfaces status inaccuracies?
 Date:  Sat, 28 Aug 2004 05:05:34 -0400
In the past I've noticed the numbers for data throughput on the
Status: Interfaces screen didn't seem to be accurate, but wasn't
completely sure how it worked and didn't have solid proof that it
wasn't working correctly.

I upgraded to 1.1, of course rebooting in the process, about 5.5 days
ago, and have noticed the following stats since that don't add up.

WAN - In/out packets  	 12059108/7954374 (367.14 MB/2.60 GB)
LAN - In/out packets  	 8270273/9681724 (2.55 GB/39.77 MB)
WLAN - In/out packets  	 93127/343551 (7.61 MB/46.40 MB)

I use the LAN the vast majority of the time, so that part seems
reasonable.  But I know for a fact that I've uploaded more than 39.77
MB from the LAN to the internet.  Probably right around the 367 MB
minus 7 MB on WLAN stat on the WAN.

Do these counters roll over back to 0 at some point?  Are there known
issues with these not being completely accurate?  Or am I misreading
the stats maybe?

Appreciate any help.
