I have windows XP with highspeed cable internet connection. When viewing my 
network properties I have noticed that 854, 000, 000, 000 packets have been 
sent and that this number increases rapidly. In the time that it took me to 
type in the last sentence, that number increased to 900, 000, 000, 000. I 
currently have my browser open and outlook express but I am not sending 
anything. When the number of packets sent increases at this rate my load a web 
page is excruciatingly slow.

I have a network hub in which 2 computers are connected to and use the internet 
at the same time. I have two IP addresses. (I don't know if this is relevent)

Is this something that I need to worry about. Or is this normal activity and 
the browser slowdown is simply a coincidence.

Thanks for any input
