How to prevent Port Scanner Attacks on Wi Fi Modem

We have had our Belkin Wi Fi router for some time now and every so often I check the Securety Log. I usualy just see our computers logging in. But now I see many Port Scanner attacks. We belive that someone is hacking our computer system. The only sort of internet protection we have is Windows Firewall and AVG Free. Apparently, this is not enough. If someone could give me some advice on how to prevent Port Scanner attacks. We have fears that someone is trying to plant viruses in our computers, someone may be using our internet connection for ilicet practices and that someone may be trying to use our internet usage. If anyone could help I would be very greatful. Thank you in advance.

Withouth knowing the exact model I dont have specifics, but the scanner attacks can usuually be prevented or at least minimzed by a setting in the router that prevents pinging. Some models are better at this than others. Is the unit setup with a passkey? and if so do you know the method?

My belkin router n3000 stopped working out of the blue , internet connection shows up but no internet

Try recycling the router by unplugging it then after 20 seconds plug it back in. See if you can stay connected. If not, unplug the modem and the router, then plug the modem in and let it cycle up for about a minute or two, then plug the router in and let it cycle up.

If you turn your computer and router off at night, then when you turn them back on, if the router boots up before the modem, it will have connection problems. A power outage in the house causes the same thing if the router cycles up before the modem.

There is no Internet between the hours 8:00pm and 11:00pm

Wi-Fi routers usually have the ability for the user to restrict the hours of Internet access(most of the time used for unruly teenagers).Log into the router(the IP address might be,if not it is probably on the router somewhere).Then locate "admininstration" or something like that to look at the access time settings.

Can i connect belkin to belkin through dsl modem and how

Yes, you can connect:

DSL modem WAN/Internet port on Belkin #1

LAN/network port on Belkin #1 WAN/Internet port on Belkin #2

LAN/network port on Belkin #2 your computer

If the two Belkins are in different rooms, and there are more than one computer in the room with Belkin #2, it makes sense to run ONE (not MANY) Ethernet cables from Belkin #1 to Belkin #2.

I have several neighbors using my 2wire100 Gateway modem from their homes. This is slowing my internet experience and sometimes locks me up on the internet. How can I put a security password on this...

You have to log on at the router's settings page and go under wi-fi (or wireless) section. Here locate the security tab, enable it and set a password for this connection. I suggest you when doing all the above settings to be connected with cable connection. This is to prevent you to be locked out of your wi-fi in case of an error at password.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Ongoing lost connections

before you update firmware, make sure you understand what the update is fixing. any firmware update will also set your router back to default settings, and will have to be set back to your personal network settings (hope you wrote these down, or printed the pages).

you say the desktop is hard wired to the cable modem? i'm confused. the cable modem gets its signal from the coaxial cable that comes out of the wall, and into the modem. the ethernet cable should then be connected to the wan port on the wireless router. i would be nterested to know exactly how everything is wired. it should be like i just explained. if not, please inform.
