    After resetting the data counter to zero and turning off the wifi and the computer is shut down (Windows 8) when I turn the computer back on and go to connect the wifi sometimes it shows data use. How can this be?

    Does anyone know how accurate the Windows data meter is? I just connect mine a few weeks ago and it is showing a much lower data usage than my internet provider is? For example, the Windows meter has me using between 300 to 400 MBs a day while my internet provider is showing between 7 to 12 GBs a day. I am confused by the huge difference, which one is right?
