    I'm having some problems with LnS and my router (Linksys WRT54G). The internet works fine for about 30 minutes, then I get bombarded with these ETH packets being intercepted and blocked. When this happens I am unable to access my internet at all. The source MAC address in the logs is very similar to my router MAC. The only difference in the very last letter. The desintation MAC is this PC's wireless adapter MAC.

    I have followed the guide here and setup the UDP and ETH rule but doesn't seem to solve my problem. Here are screenshots of the two rules I created:

    ETH: http://img163.imageshack.us/i/eth.jpg/

    IGMP: http://img543.imageshack.us/img543/7339/igmp.jpg

    What have I done wrong?


    EDIT 1: Something I have noticed is that if there is a drop out and I lose connection to the network, the wireless connection automatically reconnects itself back to the network, this is when the problem starts and my internet is not accessiible. What I then have to do is either restart LnS or repair the wireless network connection.

    EDIT 2: This ETH interception just happened without me getting disconnected, so I guess it just happens at random.

    Disabling protocol filtering in lns options solved this problem for me-also using Linksys WRT54G.

    Just checked and the protocol filtering activation is already disabled. Ill try enabling it, see if it helps.

    Any other ideas?

    EDIT: Even enabling the protocol filerting activation caused the ETH packets which stopped the internet.
