    Hello,

    Without knowing for certain, I can only guess that someone was running a program at the hotspot on the IP address you are now assigned which made use of many inbound network connections. Perhaps a game or some other type of P2P app. These are probably the result of other computers still trying to connect to that other computer. That is, of course, just a guess on my part.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
