Does anyone know how to configure the firewall settings on a new-model Motorola Netopia 2247-N8 modem/router?
I am having severe issues with streaming audio/video (endless buffering, permanent stopping), and my ISP's only suggestion is to adjust the firewall on my device. However, my GUI seems to be missing the buttons/links/menus necessary to even access the firewall settings. [more inside]

I need to set up a wireless network at home. Here are my parameters:
I have one business computer (the main desktop) that is plugged into the cable modem and has many firewalls and will not be on the wireless network.
I want to have a reasonably secure but easy to use wireless router (with good range) that will work for both pc's and mac's hooked up to the cable modem.
What is the best router to use and will I run into trouble with the desktop/firewalls? I've set up a network with an airport before and it was very easy. I'm looking for the same experience.

Warning: Networking Geekery Ahead Once upon a time I was able to use VNC viewer (the binary executable, not the java viewer) on my work Windows XP PC to connect to VNC server on my home Windows XP PC via Port 443. This allowed me to view and control my home desktop in a window on my work PC and thereby do an end run around the restrictive web filter/firewall at work. It was slow, but it was still useable and reliable.
I stopped using it for a couple of weeks when I lost my USB key. I recently found it and tried my VNC connection again from work. It doesn't work now. [more inside]

On my XP system, the recently installed Norton anti-worm app told me that my Netgear RP614v2 NAT-enabled router attempted to udp connect to my port number 2061 from its port 12024. However, there is no port fowarding or triggering enabled, nor is there a DMZ address configured at all. [more inside]

Does my router hate AJAX? When I access Google Maps (or certain other sites that make use of similar technology) it consistently triggers network freezes and delays on my home network. [more inside]

My router logs show that I have been under what looks like a sustained low level DOS attack for quite a while now. An example entry is:
1 Blocked by DoS protection 10.69.0.1
I assume the IP is spoofed because it is a reserved IP and I am on a 192.168.*.* local network. What can I find out or determine about the attack? What tools and resources are available?
