Local Area Connection - Unknown Traffic

Hi, I have just become aware of something I didnt notice before.

I have a home network consisting of 2 computers. 1, a desktop connected to a router via cat5 Cable, and 2, a laptop which connects wirelessly to the router.

With the Laptop disconnected, I've noticed the Local Area connection is both sending and receiving a large number of packets constantly. It's sending 30 packets per second and receiving 24.

Is this normal even though the PC has nothing to communicate with other than the router. When I initiate a lockdown with my firewall, all trafic stops.

Just concerned I have a virus or other potential problem.

Thanks for any help on this one.
