Hi, I'd like to know if the statistics for Activity Packets Received when connected to a wireless network should increase, even when the computer is idle and not connected to the intrenet (only connected to the network).
Many Thnaks.

(any network) may be perfectly innocuous, or it may indicate unauthorised traffic or intrusion. If your network is properly secured you should be safe enough (although no matter how hard you try you'll never make a wireless network totally secure), but if you're worries you can install a traffic monitor to alert you to unauthorised use.
