I changed the IP many times, switched off the modem and restarted after about a minute, and still the problem persisted. As if that is not enough, right now, and at least eight hours have passed by now, when I connected, one of the IPs that was pestering me earlier was just blocked by the firewall - its one in China - 188.8.131.52, and the protocol is TCP.
So does it mean that someone has some kind of handle over my computer, so that every time I connect to the net, regardless of the IP, they know its me?
About the router thing, I don't understand all this much, but I thought mine was a router: I connect by PPPOE; earlier I used to let the modem save the password and there were very few firewall events then, but after I switched to saving the password in Windows and manually connecting, it is the firewall taking most of it.
