Can anyone explain thie message to me?

I've used my 2Wire 1800hg since June of 2005 and have never gotten a message from my Home Portal.

I don't have a clue what it is talking about so if anyone can fill me in, I will be very appreciative.

The message has stopped but I did scans for viruses and malware - NOTHING.

WindowsSeven is the name of the computer.

Thanks

You had a program on the windowsseven computer that is making thousands of separate connection this can be something a virus or malware program would do, it can also be a normal function of a game or other type of program

Well, thanks for the reply.

Yes, that what the message says but what could be making those thousands of separate connections?

Anyway, we are OK now and I am happy but still puzzled.

Found no malware.

To troubleshoot it further... go the the MDC Firewall Detailed Information link: »192.168.1.254/xslt?PAGE=J14
Look at the section call NAT Sessions.

The first two lines under there are unique and will tell you how many (x) of x/1024 sessions you are currently using. If you get too low, your router will crash.

You can do a find/highlight the particular IP addresses of interest to see which computer/device is generating the massive amounts of sessions (in your case the one associated with windowseven). You can also see if there is a common website or destination IP that also keeps coming up. As your malware checks came up fine, it might be a particular website you visit.

Thanks for the reply.

I had never seen that message before until I cranked up an 1800Hg which I had never used before and the message appeared after I began to use it.

I went back to a different 1800Hg and never saw that message again.

Any relationship there?

Happy Thanksgiving.
