    Yes, each connection has DHCP, DNS and probably some network traffic from ISP and Windows Update checks.

    Modem activity always happens when you have a computer online. If it is turned off, the modem will still communicate with your ISP for letting it know that it is online.

    That is correct, because the OS is no longer doing any type of maintenance.
