  1. Hi,

    I'm a mass downloader and with Windows XP in the network connection window I can see packets. In Vista I see that it is bytes and I would like to know what is the representation of the packets... KB, B, MB and so on??? What is it exactly?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    There may be some confusion here:

    Packets and send and receive bytes can actually differ in size.

    This can get very involved with explanations

    Unless you get other replies, it may be better to start googling all this
