Bandwidth usage accuracy

    I'm using tomato 1.28 on a WRT54GL. No problems. I have a couple of computers and a printer connected to the router. My ISP is a wireless community system running trango units.

    My question is: How accurate is the bandwidth monitoring reporting on the router? It appears to report 2 to 4 times the usage that the monitor from the ISP does. So, either the ISP software is junk and I'm getting a deal ... or tomato is reporting something else.

    I suspect that due to the ISP network being overloaded tomato might be reporting TCP retransmissions ... but 2 to 4 times in usage seems excessive.

    Not sure where to look ... and I really don't want to ask the ISP.
