several questions including, what kind of packets? to which port? and how did you determine this?
do you have a log that records this, if so please post a screen print.
merely telling us that you are getting several packets past your router, is like saying the US Postal Services deliver mail.
if you want help you must provide more information in line with the above questions...
I have a linksys BEFSR41 ver2. router that is connected to my cable modem. Recently I have been receiving tons of incoming packet on average about 25-40 packets every 30mins sometimes more.
I sent an e-mail to linksys regarding this and they said that there is no way of knowing if this is hacker activity or not.
I just want to know why is there an increase in incoming activity? And should I be worried. I have Block WAN request enabled on my linksys router...also with the latest firmware available.
