said by pfak:So I guess in this case, we would need cooperation from the host ISP. Its funny how someone can be DDOSed and he/she will go over their bandwidth caps for no fault of his/ hers. said by xtachx:
I have a question with such DDOS attacks. If no ports are forwarded on the router side, wouldnt the packets just be ignored?
DDoS will cause your downstream or upstream to be saturated, thus preventing legitimate traffic from reaching the intended destination.
Replacing your router is not going to resolve the problem. Having cooperation from your ISP to filter traffic, or stop pissing off people is the best result
