There is no traffic over the WAN. Just the LAN.

When I reboot the Dlink NAS DNS-323 the traffic stops momentarily.
When I reboot my netbook the traffic stops momentarily.
I turned off the iTunes service on the DNS-323. Something is still causing an 800kbps 24/7 data stream and I can't figure out what.

Could the SMB share on the NAS cause this much traffic? Netstat reports this.

TCP EEEPC:1232 dlink:microsoft-ds TIME_WAIT
TCP EEEPC:1256 dlink:microsoft-ds TIME_WAIT
TCP EEEPC:1258 dlink:microsoft-ds TIME_WAIT
TCP EEEPC:1265 dlink:microsoft-ds TIME_WAIT
TCP EEEPC:1277 dlink:microsoft-ds ESTABLISHED

I have been fiddling with iTunes and WMP to organize a large MP3 collection on the NAS. If a process got orphaned (iTunes did lock upon me) I would have thought a reboot would have fixed it. But the 800kbps chatter returns almost immediately upon reboot.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Using my finely honed goggling skills :) I figured it out. It was my printer that is connected to the DNS-323. I killed the print service and the network traffic dropped to nothing. OK off for another drink before I enter 2011.

But you are right iTunes and WMP can snoop and organize your music collection for you. Normally it only occurs when the apps are running.

Thanks for the Wireshark tip. In my case my Tomato router provided me with Real time graphs of usage. I could see it at the router level. I just could not determine which device (DSi, Wii, Apple TV, WDTV, NAS, printer, Slingbox, PC or netbook was responsible.

I still don't know why the netbook was talking to the printer via USB (which is connected to the NAS).
