A simple test.

Click on the Start button (same place a the KDE button)

Click on Network Connections

Click on Local Area connections

You will see an activity section in the window.

With the computer connected to the LAN there should/could be a little,
very little activity from LAN. Handshaking.

As long as 'you' are not doing anything on The Internet it should not
change much when connected to The Internet. If it jumps then something is
using your computer and burning up your time.
