Linksys Router Security?

parias asked 2 years ago

I have tried to change my IP various times and it just won't do it. I called my internet provider and he said to just wait for the lease time and the IP will change. I waited and it did not change. I keep getting pinged by other people (I've been told they are using something called a shell). Is there anyway to protect against this? If so please let me know. As I cannot change my IP I would like to be able to protect against it.

people are pinging you, what kind of problems is it causing you?

if your router is replying to all the ping requests, maybe you can look into the possiblity of disabling that in the router

sometimes its called ICMP
