Dell and Windoows Updates Win10H. SecureLine VPN
« on: July 14, 2017, 03:55:12 AM »
Hello there.
 I have  Inspiron 3650 Desktop ok So I went to Dell.com and did the driver updates and it did a bios update and it keeps wanting me to download this file. Dell Wireless 1707 WiFi + Bluetooth Driver
File Name: Network_Driver_114JK_WN32_10.0.1.0_A00.EXE
My Dell Inspiron 3650 is a 64bit.
But anyways I purchased the SecureLine VPN.. and while i have it on.. it tells me that I don't need that updates and the Wi-Fi Inspector tells me that my router is accessible from the internet
Description This Device has open port(s) facing the internet.
Catalogue ID        HNS-WAN-ACCESS
Open ports reachable from address:70.121.142.216
Open ports reachable from the internet including:7547
While the VPN is running it tells me every thing is all good to go.
The Router is a ARRIS TG1672G Router.

So besides the Dell Update Page I go to the Windows Update page and loads a lot of update of drivers to download and install.. Well they had error and would not install and so while the VPN  is on, the driver updates are telling me I don't need nothing. So I am worried I may have been running an program that maybe has some defects.
I would feel a lot more secure if you could tell me that I am not risk while running this program. I tried doing the suggestions I even rebooted the Router and if I wasn't moving this month I would probably go stand in line at TimeWarner Spectrum to get a new Router but I got too much on my plate now. ..

Here is my systems info I took off the Dell page.
I am using Window10 Home.

If you want to solve the problem with the router a other driver won't help you.
You need new firmware where the hole is patched.

Dear Eddy,

You are always so smartly convinced of your answers, but look have you actually looked up the who is of the above IP address 70.121.142.216 ?
If you did, you'd find that this is one of the IP addresses of an internet provider, as follows  :
Address type   IPv4   
Hostname   cpe-70-121-142-216.satx.res.rr.com
ASN   11427 - SCRR-11427 - Time Warner Cable Internet LLC
ISP   Spectrum
Connection type   Cable
Organization   Road Runner
Timezone   America/Chicago (UTC-5)
Local time   03:13:22
Country   United States     United States
State / Region   Texas
District / County   Bexar County
City   San Antonio
Zip / Postal code   78288

In other words, this is not the IP address of the person using that particular ISP, but one of the IP addresses that appears to be used by the load balancer of the
particular ISP.   This tells me that Avast WIFI Inspector is picking up something as "vulnerable and accessible from the internet" that is ACTUALLY INTENDED TO BE
accessible from the internet.  Now, can you please let AVAST know this, and have them fix this.  Mere logic ought to tell you that I am right on this one.  Think it through, please.
Thanks!
