I have been searching for an answer all over the place and hope someone can help me. I even called comcast, but they had no suggestions beyond those I have already tried. I have WPA/TKIP security on my network, Norton, Windows defender, Spybot, and a few other security programs. I am running Windows XP. I have a netgear G/N router. I have allowed LAN access limited to only the MAC addresses of my current computers in the house. I am NOT allowing remote login at all, though this Chinese IP keeps logging in remotely to my router every few minutes. It originates in Bejing and some other cities. I have firewalls from comcast and the router firewall configured.
None of the security programs I have run come up with any indication of intusion. But I am concerned - I don't care if their government is watching me or something crazy - I am only concerned because I do online banking and such and no one should be logging into this router except me from the one designated computer.
The only other setting that I can't seem to change is the Port Forwarding setting. It is running through a service called Age-of-Empire. We don't play any on-line games associated with this. I have added some service rules - like going through FTP on a specific port and such. I cannot seem to change the default or remove the age of empire service. Could that be the problem?
Also, it is logging into the default access of the router. 192.168.100.1 . It logs in on different ports all the time, so I can't just block access to one port. Can I change the default router address?
How do I block/stop this? I am obviously very uncomfortable with this situation, and if anyone has any insight, please share. Thank you!
