Hello,

Sorry for the confusion.

`cat /proc/net/dev` gives a more relaible result [removed some for
clearity sake]:

Inter-|   Receive                |  Transmit
 face |bytes    packets errs drop|bytes     packets errs drop 
    lo:       0       0    0    0         0       0    0    0        
  eth0: 7019384   11425    0    0   1360244    8690    0    0

btw `cat /proc/net/dev_stat` produces only zero's...

where ifconfig shortly after says

[root@mips linux]# ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 08:00:2B:30:8D:2B
          inet addr:192.168.1.15  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

Still some that leaves me puzzled. :-)
