Re: abnormal modem traffic

Thanks for your guidance, Michael,

I had previously rebooted both the router and modem and unusual traffic resumed. Now, I've by-passed the wireless router and connected directly from the modem to computer. Ethernet and Internet lights continue to flash continuously on the modem, which they do even with the computer turned off.

Here's the result of a port scan of localhost:
Port            State         Service
631            open            ipp
5432           open           postgresql
48160         open         unknown
60807      open            unknown

But, I don't know diddly about this stuff.

thanks again,

Also, try turning off wireless support on the router and see if that does anything to your traffic. Maybe a neighbor is borrowing some bandwidth?

Hello All,

I'm running pre-intalled Ubuntu 8.04 on a Dell 530n and all was exceptionally good until a week or so ago. I am now getting almost coninuous modem/router traffic, even when the computer is turned off. It's a Verizon Westell 6100 modem and a Netgear WGR614 router. Both were previously silent until I initiated internet activity.

Also, I have lately been receiving a number of spam emails with myself showing as sender.

Don't know if the two are related.

Have I become a zombie? How can I check?
