post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guy am getting over 10 times more receive packets then sent and i dont know how to fix this. I got my self in to a little trouble with some one playing counter strike the other day and i am 90% sure he cause this, it made me time out a couple of times which i believe was cause by this gamer. He may have got my ip and such to do this of mirc or ventrilio. I was just wondering what this means, how he does it and most importantly how to prevent it. ta

A little Vague....Have you checked to make sure that there are no others on your network ?. I am unsure of your network config. However Do you have a wireless network ?. If so someone could be hijacking your IC.

Also I very much doubt this ''Gamer'' is causing you any issues mate.

Hijacking on wireless is not that hard...even if it is secured...It can be broken. I would check to see there are no other MAC address's listed on your network.

It is very easy to crack wireless passwords (WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc....) so you just need to manually limit the MAC addresses that can be allowed on your network. Just put your address in so no one else can use your wireless.

Why is this unusual? Home users request data from servers more than upload data.

Packet Hacking...im not sure...Packet inspection YES. People can inspect packets and find out what data is within them...such as Credit card details ETC.
