Why is there still trafic through the VMware Network Adapter when it's shut off?

Why is there still trafic through the VMware Network Adapter when it's shut off?

I see trafic through the adapter using Wireshark, why is that? And can i stop the trafic until i turn the vmware on?

Wireshark puts network adapters into promiscuos mode - which again has its own side effects.

Are you sure you detect  real traffic or just artefacts of the monitoring ?

Also how exactly do you shut the VMware network adapters off ? - which mode do they use ? - bridged or hostonly or guestonly ?

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - call me via skype "sanbarrow"
