Solved: IDS forces my router to shutdown Hello folks. I have following problem: Yesterday, out of nowhere, ESS started to block any kind of communication to my PC. When I disable the firewall, everything is just fine. When I enable it I can't log into it. I tried to find the error so I checked the log file and always when I try to login ESS detects a TCP port scan and shuts down any traffic. The router is forced to reboot. I tried to define the router IP as trusted, tried to add a new trusted zone, tried to add a complete new profile with new rules, tried to reinstall, but it is still giving me port scan messages and is blocking packets. The only way that works is to exclude the router's IP from IDS. But is my PC safe when I do that? Should I activate Windows 7 firewall instead?
