OK, So I was using Qwest DSL internet...that only provided a speed of 1.5mbps, which for running 2 desktops and sometimes 2 laptops at the same time was real slow...So I switched to Comcast with 12mbps, and bought a D-Link DIR-628 wireless router. That is the best I've seen so far.

But, after setting it up, I checked the logs and noticed a lot of blocked incoming packets...some connection requests to ports that were blocked...I've traced some of these IP's to the UK and China....I've looked them up and found the ISP of them...but not sure what to do...

Here is a list...

[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:04:04 2009 Blocked incoming UDP packet from 76.119.35.192:51466 to my-ip:port
[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:04:03 2009 Blocked incoming UDP packet from 64.193.217.73:35379 to my-ip:port
[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:04:02 2009 Blocked incoming UDP packet from 86.163.149.241:12495 to my-ip:port
[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:03:29 2009 Blocked incoming UDP packet from 69.163.6.199:55439 to my-ip:port
[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:03:26 2009 Blocked incoming UDP packet from 74.79.36.223:30716 to my-ip:port

every port is the same...and occasionally, I would get one of these...

[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:00:52 2009 Blocked incoming TCP connection request from 74.79.36.223:4919 to my-ip:port

and I've got one of these so far...that I saw at least...

[INFO] Tue Jul 14 12:01:41 2009 Blocked incoming ICMP packet (ICMP type 8) from 217.208.215.5 to my-ip

they are non-ending...just keep coming every few minutes...

so any suggestions? mail their ISP or abuse email to stop pinging or sending packets to my IP...? Any programs to monitor or analyze the packets and see if they are attack attempts?

Thanks for reading...

Also...I wouldn't rule out the possibility of a program or a virus requesting download information from it's host, that has been blocked by the new wireless router with the advanced firewall...but how can I found out?
