Hmm! I use google many times a day. Though you're right there are some things that aren't quite so specifically spelt out. Mass scans - I think you're probably right on that. Ehat is disturbing is that the router has a firewall and it is on but its the XP firewall that is logging them. Not much of a firewall in the router I guess.

Netflow - I'll google that - thanks for the tip.

I can put myself into your place and I know for sure that unless
somebody tells you nicely you need to google, you're going to keep
asking questions about subjects that are answered / discussed all over
the web. So please, do use google.

Yes. Google netflow.

  A 90% bet: it's the story of mass scans that your firewall detects -
that you take for somebody trying to 'hack you'.
