I'm hoping someone can help me figure out something. I have McAfee version 9. I have a Dell Dimension E521, with Vista. I do not have a router. My Internet provider is wireless broadband. I have an antenna on my roof, which gets it's signal from an antenna in town, ect. Before this I had dial up. Not long after I had the broadband installed I noticed the signal would slow way down - eventually found that others seemed to be accessing my computer - in other words when I would check "network" in Windows Explorer I would see other names appearing. I began banning the people who would appear in this and also set my Network and Sharing Center - Sharing and Discovery all to off. This seems to keep them off my computer. BUT in the inbound events - which I check often - I have a lot of different ones trying to access my computer. When I called my ISP they said without a router, there was no way a person could be getting in through the Internet. That it had to be through a phone line or something. I no longer have a phone line hooked to my computer. Anyway last week, my Internet provider was down for several days - I had no Internet at all. But when I checked my inbound events - for one day - in 24 hours, I had 275 inbound events. Why is this? Who is this? Do I have something set wrong on my computer or Internet? When I locked down the firewall - this did stop. But as soon as I would open it back up - they came back. Can anyone give me some advice or help on this.
