    If you are actually connecting to the internet through your PC then you should be able to monitor internet activity by hitting Ctrl Alt and Del simultaneously on the PC. Then click on network. You should see an increase in network activity when you initiate Streaming from the mobile device.
    How are you connecting the mobile to the PC? Are you using Internet Connection Sharing technology on the PC?

    There is a nice utility available for free in the Android marketplace called "Fling", by Overlook. It will detect your network, show all connected devices on that subnet. You can also see all of your good old facts such as; gateway, network/subnet IP, DNS data, connection speed, etc. It will also scan service ports of hosts on your network. Probably much more data than you need, but it will get the job done. You can get it here: Fling Network Utility

    Good luck!

    If your PC is on a wired connection with a wireless card you could probably bridge the connection (or just use internet connection sharing if you use windows) and make an ad-hoc network to connect to via wifi.

    If you have connected your android device to your computer then It is straightforward that the internet you are using on your android device is that of computer if your computer has an internet connection.
