Well past few days I noticed my WiFi acting strange on my iPod, disconnecting sometimes.

And now my desktop just disconnected from internet for like 2 seconds. The disconnections never last more than a second for two. This has never happened before.

I did just put a WPA2 encryption on my WiFi would that cause anything? Before that it wasn't secured.

Anyway to tell if I am indeed getting Denial of Service?

In XP, go to your control panel, and then Network Connections, right click the adapter that is used to get online, and click properties. In one of the tabs, you can select the network that you are trying to access, and then click properties. Set the proper encryption type, and the key.

Also, unplug your router, modem, and disable/reenable your adapter, as this may fix the problem

DoS is directed at a web server, I don't think it can be directed onto a home network.

A DoSA can be targeted at any PC on the Internet.


@ Kram B This sounds more like a temporary ISP problem. Perhaps nothing at all to do with your PC\router.

Maybe. But I have reasons for people to DoS me, so not sure.

If it continues I will assume it's a DoS.

A properly done DoS would most likely knock you off line and keep you off for more then just a few seconds.
