    I recently changed Linksys network adapters from a PCI card adapter to a USB
    adapter on my Windows XP computer. Before the change, the Wireless Network
    Connection Status window that appears when I double click the connection
    status icon would display the sent and receive activity in bytes. Now the
    activity is displayed as packets.

    Is there a way to change the display back to bytes?

  2. Hi
    I think it depends on the way the Card's drivers are designed, and it can
    not be changes.
    There are a lot of small utilities that can add to the Network and would
    show traffic in Bytes (example),

    I was afraid of that. Thanks.
