Re: Internet issues

What makes you believe that?

If you think you’re being DDOS’d then report it to the authorities as it’s an illegal offence to do so.

Re: Internet issues

I spoke to the police they said there is nothing they can do. Speak to my network provider and they saying there is nothing they can do. There mush be a way for them to monitor my box or something.

Nope.

You can put the hub into modem mode to change your IP but you’ll need a third party router to handle your Wifi etc. 

Plus there’s nothing stopping you getting DDOS’d again on your new IP.

Where did you get a new Virgin router from?

And no they won’t monitor it.

Re: Internet issues

By the very nature of a Distributed DOS the attack comes from many different directions and monitoring will not help resolve it.

The only way to avoid DDOS is not to have someone start it.

Re: Internet issues

I would have though the ISP Virgin media could advise if your hub was under ddos attack, it is usually websites that get ddos attacks but hubs can be a target, not had this myself but found a good link explaining this and measures that can be taken, seem a bit complex.-

Firewalls usually are needed to help protect against ddos, the hub has a firewall  and windows 10 has a firewall "defender", make sure both hub and pc firewalls are switched on.

If you do switch to modem mode using your own router, which changes the IP address that may solve the unusual issue, but look at the logs in the hub settings to see if anything is indicated there.

Re: Internet issues

There's no firewall logs on the hub to check

Re: Internet issues

I agree, there are no firewall logs for the VM hub but in hub  settings, tools, network status, the router status and network logs can be inspected for anything odd or unusual.

I always switch off UPnP in hub advanced settings which some advise .

Unless some expensive protection software such as software firewalls, or hard firewalls, or something like wireshark are used it is difficult to know who is attacking a hub or device, same with port scan attacks, however like most users with limited knowledge it is not easy for the average user to defend against determined attacks and I rely on the inbuilt firewalls but not sure how effective they are.
