Last Wednesday evening,I was doing something offline when I noticed activity on my cable modem.I discovered my ISP was having network problems so left it at that.
The next day,when NTL gave the all clear,I was puzzled to see that I still had this unknown traffic.
I posted my problem on a cable users forum
theres a couple of screenshots there to give you an idea of whats happening.
If this is normal activity,,why has it only just now shown itself on my modem,after being hidden for 3 years?
I've scanned for spyware and virus,with nothing more than cookies discovered.
I'm out of my depth when it comes to networking..I don't know where to start.
One of my many trawls for info led me to this thread,
quote: "It means that ntl networks have left RIP running on a cable interface, which is bad practice. They need to set the cable interface you're on to Passive in the RIP config."
Is this relevant to my problem?
Is there anything I can do to stop it?
What exactly is my PC exchanging with this address?
How detrimental to online gaming will this be?Since this started,I have done nothing but browse the net for solutions to this annoyance.I really miss my flight sim,but don't want to upset other players with a messed up connection.
I have contacted my ISP,through email,but they are saying its normal behaviour.I think this cannot be,as it has only just manifested itself since their service disruption..however I cannot prove this because I don't know enough to argue my point.
Anyone care enough to try and help me nail this?
thanls in advance for any advice offered..
