I recently switched ISP's and decided to moved around my firewall rules, delete some, etc. Don't trust this ISP so I wanted to see it's different connections attempts. While this is going on, I'm constantly getting echo request and maybe others that I block from Akamai, China and less from other parts of the globe.
One of my weak points is networking so I'm looking for some enlightenment. Why does Akamai need to connect to my computer? EDIT: I know full well that Akamai is harmless but still curious.
BTW, I had the ISP enable bridged mode on the modem they shipped me because the silly thing had no way to turn off WiFi! I've yet to hook up my router to secure things so I'm pretty wide open ATM due to pure laziness on my part.
