Hi guys,

I recentley had my email hacked and my paypal messed with but nothing else was messed with(my email and paypal had the same username and password) I am thinking it was a flook as the password for my email was also usernames on my games which people could see, I have a belkin N1 wireless router with my pc and ps3 hard wired, 2 iphones and a laptop wireless which all the settings on the router were default only thing I did was put a wpa2 security code in(stupid I know). with avg anti virus installed also. I have now changed all my passwords installed norton 360 5.0 and also changed my router settings,

ip address changed- SSID changed and invisible- wpa2 security code changed- mac address filtering for just the pc i use, my iphones and ps3 plus the missies laptop.

BUT My firewall log in my router settings has had 17 attacks today alone from places like usa brazil italy china tokyo etc etc (ip traced)!

The question is, I am not sure if this is normal or not as i have google searched this and people say it is normal in other forums putting it down to the router ''randomly chatting and making it look like its doing an amazing job''.

they are trying to find an open port. If you don't open a port intentionally, you firewall should keep them out.

ICMP is someone trying to PING your IP.

I get about 20 to 50 checks a week on my firewall.
