Hi, Same here,
all was fine until yesterday(Sunday) when" Mobile connection" appeared on my display, I have not changed anything nor loaded any new drivers.
Have tried uninstalling and re-installing but it makes no difference.
I do not have any mobile connections so not sure what it all means
I am running Windows 7 X 64 bit

Glad I'm not alone in having got this on the chart. I'm with BT Total Broadband and running a Sony laptop with Vista, but doubt that has anything to do with the problem.

I have an idea - server side change may have messed things up

Fixed - was a mistake due to some changes I was making at the weekend.

The mobile connection, is meant as just a warning for when we notice that your externally visible IP address has changed, and it matches one of the mobile providers IP blocks. This was failing and returning true - doh!!!

Some may still see the note on the meter window, until they restart app, or the PC receives a local IP address change notification, e.g. coming out of sleep mode is most common event to do this.
