    I'm running tomato-K26USB-NVRAM64K-1.28.0502.8MIPSR2Toastman-RT-N-VLAN-VPN-NOCAT on a RT-N66U. I've often noticed the numbers are higher on the IP Traffic for the machine that moves most of the data than they are on the Bandwidth for the WAN. For example, the IP Traffic for (my server) is 295.38 GB for the last 24h, Bandwidth for the WAN is 268.32 GB for the same period.

    If anything, I would expect WAN bandwidth to be higher, as it also has the (minimal) traffic from my other machines on it. Can anyone explain this? Which number is correct?
