Firewall program alerts for iexplore.exe from DNS IP's

    Hello,
    I have been getting many firewall program alerts for iexplore.exe from my 3 DNS IP's, (2 that came from my ISP and the third, my router's IP which I added to static DNS.) This has been happening for the last few weeks or so. All alerts are being blocked, but my webpages are loading extremely slow for my tweaked 4/384 cable connection when these alerts start logging. I have been working with some good people at the zonelabs.org forums trying to figure this out with no luck so far. It seems as though I have been experiencing this since flashing Rupan's hyperwrt 4.00.7, and then 4.20.6 firmware in July. I don't necessarily believe that the firmware is the issue as I may not have my settings configured properly. I do know that I haven't changed anything in my firewall settings or version to have caused this. I've had the router for a little over a year and ran only linksys official firmware until this July without any of these alerts. For anyone interested in trying to help me, I will link the thread from zonelabs.org to save me the hassle of typing it all over again, and to give anyone willing to help, access to all the suggestions that have been given. There is also a link to another thread in my first post from a person who had the same issue back in February.
