    Newbie question

    wallwatcher is reporting incoming tcp traffic trying to connect to my gateway on

    im using wrt2.01b, I was surprised to see the incoming connection as I thought this would have been blocked by the firewall.

    The connection is coming from a web site I use, once i log on I get several attempts from their IP then several others form other IPs. Once I move to another site the incoming attempts stop.

    I have noticed that I never get a "connection blocked" message from wallwatcher so how can i tell if incoming connections are being blocked, or its just my password stopping access to the router

    I do have a software FW on my pc but this won't protect my router !

    Having looked into this a little further I find that I have two IPs for the WTR54GS, the default and

    Is this a fault in may configuration ie corrupt wrt2.1b or is this second web interface ment to be there. It has the same pasword as the default page, Im just surprised it's there and that someones trying to conncet to it on port 80.

    any idea if I can get rid of it or block the incoming connection to it.

    Im tying to determin if the incoming requests to IP192.168.2.2 are being blocked by the WRT54GS firewall. Wallwatcher says there are incoming connections but not if they've been blocked or passed.

    I don't have any web services running on my network and don't understand where the second web interface for the WRT54GS has come from.

    I want to block ALL incoming traffic, remote management is disabled and I don't have any DMZ set up.

    If I get a port scanner and scan port 80 from outside of the firewall will this let me know if it's being blocked or not.

    That was my understanding, thats why I don't understand why some web sites I use send incoming packets to it on port 80, especially as its the web interface of the wrt54.
