DSL modem with the router builtin. Such are built for cost and lowered support calls. You may not like such a modem and will have to replace it.
And yes, you always are being probed.
Hello, my question is about my DSL modem. Prior to having it I had Cable Modem, it passed the internet IP through to my router and I was able to monitor all traffic from outside to my router to include port scans and hack attempts. With the DSL modem it's a little different; the modem gets the internet IP address and runs Nat on the other side and issues a Private IP to my router. Thats where the problem comes in. Even though the DSL modem has a web GUI it does not monitor any outside traffic so it is impossible for me to tell if Im being probed, flooded, scanned, ect.. Does anyone have a solution to this problem or know of a way I can work around this? The model of the modem is Prestige 645 by Zyxel
