Is Plusnet Attacking Me?

bearing in mind I am no longer a customer I have been getting DOS Attack from one of your IP addresses. Anyone shed any light? Could It be that I am leaving the forum before the page Is loaded up properly?
Regards

What host name does a reverse lookup resolve to Steve?

No suspicious activity on the server Steve so I'd imagine whatever you're seeing is harmless enough.

Not suspicious?  So is it deliberate then?
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

That's a distinct possibility - do the times seem to tie up?

Re: Is Plusnet Attacking Me?

@BP Thanks for your time and help. Funnily enough It hasn't happened since I made this thread Crazy
@AlaricAdair I'm not sure I follow?
@Jelv as I said to bob It has not happened since I made this thread, However I haven't been logged into the forum and I have been trying to replicate It but as with everything technical It has a mind of Its own, Logged In now though so will keep an eye on my logs and times I last logged In here at.
Absolutely nothing to worry about though as I don't have a Static IP address. I was more curious really. And I use the Netgear DGN2200 and have read that this can happen If you leave a page before It gets back to you properly, I just have a funny feeling that the latter Is more than likely the case.
TBH I thought It was something fishy with TalkTalk's forum at first as I get this quite a lot and I used to visit that forum regularly too. Haven't checked up the IP address though until now and was surprised to find Plus net's name on It.
But I visit here quite often and there Is times where loading pages takes a while so I give up and leave the page and re-visit several minutes later. Don't usually check my logs until last thing at night (usually when I just want to be nosy though)
Regards
Steve
