Before, I didn't even know DDoS attacks could target any single computer out, but now I do.
The strangest thing is it is happening to my wireless laptop, and not any of the other three computers on this home network.

The attacks started on 7/19/2006, and my firewall reads out "Your computer has been attacked. Attack - DDoS (denied servicing). The attack has been successfully repulsed." Which is a lie, because I am still booted offline.

Since then, there has been 48 attacks, all usually happening each and every time I try to connect, bring up AOL, or Ie or even Firefox.

Please help me out.

You probably have a neighbor with a wireless network and you may not have your security set properly on your laptop, router or both.

What kind of faults in my security should I look for?
