ghost traffic on the network?

    Hi there,

    I worked on a WDS setup with two WRT54G last week and got it running. I use wrtBwLog to measure traffic:

    DSL-> (PPPoE) Router -uplink-> WRT54G-1
    ~~~WLAN -WDS~~~
    WRT54G-2 -> LAN and WLAN clients

    The router run with Freeman 1.0.4.
    WrtBwLog is running on the WRT54G-1 monitoring vlan1 and reload at reboot works fine. I am still working on backup.

    :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:
    So: My question is about traffic, that occures when no PC is running and WRT54G-2 is off. Last night, eg, I got 4.77MB during 7 hours when WRT54G-2 was turned off and no WLAN client was connected. What kind of traffic can this be? Does the (DSL connected) router "talK" to the WRT54G-1? Updating Routing informaiton? But it's too mich, isn't it?
