So today I'm doing my usual surfing on my Vista laptop, with the odity that it is exremely sluggish and timing out. I then found out it was doing it for other apps such as messenger, steam and IRC. It ends up in behavior that seems like packet loss, although I've seen the actual wireless connection be killed from "internet" to "local acess" (vistas wireless modes) for about a second. Looking at eset's firewall log (with all logging turned on) I see a flood of new events in the log. Time - Event - Source - Target - Protocol Every second - Packet blocked by active defense (IDS) - 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.2 - ARP I've never seen these events in the log before, and I can't say I've changed any settings during my sleep. Booting up my XP laptop on the same wireless network, I don't get this issue. Any ideas what is going on?
