    Firmware Version: v8.00.5



    What do these mean and how do I stop/block this? None of my roommates are downloading anything, but there's still all this crap going on. I have no idea what it could be.



    After making my post, if I mouse over WRT54G, it says "Do not buy the WRT54G/GS. Clicking on this link will goto the WRT54GL which is far superior and is one awesome router with 3rd party firmware."

    LOL, that makes me feel GREAT about my router

    Doesnt look all that odd to me. When you connect outbound if you are logging it will log all the websites and connections you make. I could show you my log and it is far worse. As far as incomming connections, its just the nature of always on connections. You will always have sites out there trying to get in and if you are logging inbound connetions you will see lots of stuff like you are seeing. I cant find anything directly related to port 25548 but who knows. All is all I dont see anything to worry about.

    It is causing the connection to be REALLY slow actually. Really REALLY slow. I'm talking pings to google.com over 1000ms AND timing out. It's not usually this bad but tonight it's just completely ridiculous.

    Any ideas on how to just block all this stuff manually? I'm sure if I can block port 25548, that will solve A LOT of this crap.

    it's already blocked, as it stops at your router.
    It could be a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), an attack that just floods your connection.
    Bad news: outside of changing your IP (just unplug the phone line, reboot the modem and wait 5-10 minutes before replugging the phone line if you are on DSL), not much can be done.
    Good news: it cant do much more than slowing you down.

    So, change IP if you can and check again.
    Are you using a dynamic DNS service?
