For the last 3 weeks or so I have been getting DOS attacks on my network/router. The worst thing about it is I use a static IP address, so you would presume resetting the router gives a new IP and the attacks would stop. I have contacted the ISP and they have clearly stated its a software error and they can not provide any further help.. The attacks seem to be more targeted over times I need the internet connection.. I started playing WoW and for the first fortnight my router was being target just on Raid nights so I couldnt join the guild team, but the last week, has progressed to a constant mild attack and in peak times I would use it, the DOS attacks do worse then normal such as the first fortnight..
I have done scans with Malwarebytes, ESET smart security virus scanner and just then FRST.. There doesnt seem to be any viruses of any kind on my computer. (There is multiple computers on the network which may be part of the problem but ive tried isolating just mine and the problem still occurs.) For instance an hour ago I started lagging heavily while trying to game, knew it was DOS attacks, reset the router and instantly the new IP address was being attacked by the time I could open the game up again.. I have also saved some of the router logs of the DOS scans/attacks..
Any ideas on how to identify how some one or a group of people are getting hold of my IP address and launching constant DOS attacks, any info would be appreciated, I have no idea where to turn... (I presume it has to be something software related??)
