Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)
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?
