Could anyone help me with checking to see if the reason why I have gone offline is due to being dosed or ddossed please? I do have colasoft caspa 7 free and wire-shirk on my computer but not sure how to use that to check. If anyone could help I would be very grateful. Thanks.

Gone offline? Is this a server or website? Can a link be provided?

Thanks

As bludgard has said, you need to provide a bit more detail.

 

If it is a home internet connection, more than likely it is an ISP outage. If not... again more detail is needed.

Sorry for the delay. It's been a couple of busy days. It's a home Internet connection that keeps dropping out every now and then. I am also a bit concerned because I recently learned that some people can resolve IP addresses through Skype for instance and take you offline that way. Looking at my IP logs though I don't see anything suspicious but there is some stuff I really wouldn't know how to analyse. Thanks.

Okay question, are you hooked directly to an ISP modem, or do you have a router that is connected to the modem?

Well that rules out a bad router. Though honestly it could still be bad hardware. Could be the modem just dropping in and out. I doubt you were hacked or anything like that. It just sounds like bad hardware to me. Try unplugging it for five minutes and then plug it back in. Give it a nice reset. It may help the issue. If it solves it then starts doing the same thing later its time for a new modem.

Yes it does solve it and does the same thing again later. The problem is that is has a tendency to keep doing every now and then forcing us to reset the modem which does fix it normally.

Also the other strange thing I noticed is that the connection sometimes seems to go out at around about the same time every night.

Hmm... if its at night could be that there is just a lot of internet traffic for your area at that time of night, which is causing the internet dropouts. Contact your ISP and let them know of your issue, they will have you do some troubleshooting steps on the hardware more than likely. If you rent your modem from your ISP and it is a few years old I would have them send you a new one. See if it helps your issue. Like I said before it doesn't really sound like you are hacked or anything. If you are still worried head over to the malware section of the forum and submit a ticket there. They can help you out with running scans on your system to check for any nasty viruses that may be on there.
