I have just installed a firewall., and when I look in the alerts and logs section I find that I'm being pinged by a lot of guys from plusnet. None of which I know. Why are they doing it?

This is most probably due to the recent MS.Blaster worm. As long as you have a firewall preventing attempts on the affected ports, you're fine. PlusNet have blocked these pings coming from external sources, so you will only see PlusNet customers, as they cannot block these internally.
