Ok. So I'm behind a router. Does that mean that all my concern about the hyperactivity on my active lights on my wireless pc cards is paranioa? Or is it reasonable to be concerned that a relay pirate is using each of my wireless ports every time I turn the systems on?

Unless its actually slowing your connection down, its probably just your ISP making sure your IP is still alive. (im not totally sure about wireless and activity they make).

I wouldnt worry about it.

Main thing to test is, is it slowing your connection down?

If its not, then its not a DoS attack.

Simple trick to be safe



I set up my router to send any unrequested packets to the default server. However, there's no machine at that address.

So not only am all my ports showing up as "stealthed", the requests all end up in the big bit bucket in the sky.

Read your router's manual, it's a simple solution to protect your PC. I use Zone Alarm to give certain programs permission to contact the Internet, everyone else is just plain out of luck!!
