Hi. I'm a somewhat computer illiterate. I only know the basics and nother more. Recently my Yahoo DSL connection has been acting up. My Lavasoft Firewall tells me that it's an Ethernet Attack.

Ethernet Attack
Attacker's MAC: ..................
Attacker's IP: ..................

It keeps disconnecting me every 10 minutes and i have to keep pressing the button on my router and repair my IP address. It's getting really annoying and i need major help.


(nevermind) 8-)

do you have a router? I think windows only assigns the 192 range to yourself. so if you have a router that's probably yourself, or another pc that's connected to your router.

if its really you then i'd get rid of lavasoft firewall because its a bit useless. unless you've been hijacked by something that's trying to attack yourself.

oh yeah.. you did mention you have a router, silly me. connect to the router by typing its ip address in the url bar of your browser. pull up the ip address assignment page, figure out which pc it is, then take a trip to the malware forum because I think you have stuff that's trying to hijack yourself.

that ip is probably your router's ip...which suggests that if you are being attacked..that it's coming from your router....which could mean that either someone is coming through the router...or is just sending packets to your router and coming to you.....if your router has any form of firewall functionality...you could check it's logs
