I've noticed that the network monitor plugin seems to report download speeds at about 2 to 3 times faster than they actually are (eg. downloading a file over http: which firefox says is downloading at 10KB/s will be reported as anything from 20 to 30KB/s on the keyboard).

This doesn't appear to be just a burst or a lag issue - even if you average out the figures over time, the plugin figure seems to be 2 to 3 times too high. Indeed, I quite often see reported download speeds of around 1.3MB/s download speeds sustained for hours on end from the keyboard when downloading multiple streams from Usenet :o - which is impressive given that my ADSL pipe maxes out at 768KB/s :( .

Is this just me?

Looks like you has PPPoE, VPN etc. connection.

In release you can specify the certain interface for Netmonitor plugin.
