SNMP vulnerabilty

Every time I get another letter telling me that my network is open to SNMP problems, I follow the instructions and block the suggested ports on the hub.

Next month, another letter.

Nothing I do is fixing this problem. What do I do next?

Help, please. 

I have tried to find a software tool that might show me what device is causing the problem but none are user friendly enough for me to understand!

The following post by @ravenstar68 maybe of help where “Using Port Forwarding to drop the inbound traffic” is detailed:

FYI, forward incoming UDP packets on port 161 to an IP address not allocated to a device on your network.
