I am using HX50.

I would like to find out what are the expected  average uploads/down loads  per hour of the modem in idle state , that is when no PC or router is connected to it,

With the introduction of new FAP by BW on W3a Africa satellite and looking at the Historic details , i feel the modem is down/uploading  too much data  even when my computers /router are off

Even with the PC and router powered down, the modem itsellf carries on a 24/7 dialog with the gateway server. But it's all health and welfare stuff, maybe an occasional firmware update. Here's a my usage snapshot of a typical 0200-0700 (GMT-5) block:
04/01/2010        2:00        03:00        58             0.49          **         0.14   
04/01/2010      3:00      04:00      60          0.47          **      0.05   
04/01/2010      4:00      05:00      59          0.32          **      0.05   
04/01/2010      5:00      06:00      60          0.35          **      0.05   
04/01/2010      6:00      07:00      58          0.35          **      0.05   

I'm in bed, but the modem is still chatting. Column 5 is download, column 7 is upload. I consider this to be normal data transfer during otherwise idle time. Significantly more than that? Suspect malware - or somebody hijacking your local signal.
