okay so you're not using a router, I can see your external and only IP in the log. On a side note don't leave that pic online too long.

You need to get a router with a hardware firewall ASAP. A hardware firewall is your first line of defense.

Well, yes. A hardware firewall is always safer than any software solution. But your FW blocked this thing, didn't it?

Of course you can get a router. Your modem will connect into the router then your laptop will connect to the router. If you rely on only a software firewall for inbound and outbound protection then you are asking for trouble. Most modern day modems have a hardware firewall. My 2Wire Gateway has a hardware firewall.

Don't tell him what he can and can't. He's using his laptop and I suppose he is travelling with it a lot, doing business.
