Re: Was wondering if you fine fellows could help here....

https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=rBN5U86zBIHR8gfp0YCoCw#q=192.168.1.254

 

You sure it's not more than that?

 

I think those were disconnect attempts.

 

Another instrusion attempt...

 

Isn't reporting any keylogging stuff.

 

Why would this be happening? This isn't normal firewall behaviour. It's blocking my router from specifically trying to disconnect me.

 

Anyone?

Re: Was wondering if you fine fellows could help here....

I have no idea why you think that somebody is trying to disconnect you.

 

Any traffic your computer receives, except from within your home network, will come from 192.168.1.254.  That's the IP address of a BT Home Hub.  Since it's a router, implementing NAT, all traffic from the outside world comes through the router and will so have the router's IP address by the time it gets to your computer.

 

If somebody is trying to attack you, then the attack will have to go through the router.  And, lets' face it, if you are connected to the internet, then someone will be trying to attack you.  It goes on all the time and is mostly from automated bots looking for machines to infect.  That's why we have firewalls.

How can these can these attacks be happening even when IE explorers aren't open though? And there ain't any viruses on my computer btw. Attacks can't just pop out of nowhere.

 

Is there BT staff trying to hack into my computer?

 

There is no reason for these attacks as I never visit risky sites. I know the sites I'm visiting.

 

Another attack bang after I type this.

 

Which one of you is hacking?

 

You won't have any problems if I go to the police then?

You are connected to the Internet 24/7 unless you turn off your Homehub. You do not need to have Internet Explorer open. All Internet Explorer does is let you interact with the World Wide Web.

 

If you have your computer connected to the homehub it  will also have a connection through the homehub to the Internet unless you turn off the connection on the computer.

 

The firewall is to prevent anybody from the Internet trying to access your computer without your permission.  see link for explanation.

I suggest you read up a bit about the Internet and how it works and is exploited by unscrupulous people and why there is a need for firewalls before you go to the Police and make a fool of yourself.

This person isn't trying to steal my credit card details etc, he or she is simply disconnecting my internet, especially after I publish certain posts. They had access to my computer until I installed Bulldog, now that is stopping his or her attacks.

 

They had ample opportunity to steal my card details...

 

Edit:

 

Another attack...

Who had access to your computer. Did you allow somebody to connect remotely to your computer?

Nope and I heven't accepted any files from anybody either.

 

Disable Bulldog and my net would be discconecting every time these intrusions occur.

 

Split second of of you replies again... an intrusion.
