    Default TWINGE ATTACK Detect

    Hi, ive just up dated my firmware on my D-Link DI-624 to 2.76 Wireless Router.
    I Currenly have 3pc connected wirelessly, mine, my dads and my brother's.
    Mine and my dads pcs connect fine with no problems but its my brothers thats the problem. His pc sits on waiting for an Ip Address. And just by luck i looked at the log on the router and shows this...
    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=522 border=0><TBODY><TR bgColor=#ffffff><TD>Jan/28/2007 23:12:07
    Jan/28/2007 23:12:07
    </TD><TD>Authenticating......
    TWING ATTACK Detected
    </TD><TD></TD><TD></TD><TD>**-15-e9-**-08-**

    </TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
    The log Shows his mac address but with this twing attack in the middle.

    Edit: Its now gotten worse the twing attacks are occuring every few sceonds

    Do a google search with "twinge attack" as the keywords. From a few minutes of research it looks as though there may be several possible causes. Have a look here http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=427094 for information that may assist in eventually getting free from a true attack. From what I gather it is likely that if you are under a true Twinge attack then the reason it is comming from different addresses is because it is using muliple bot computers. Tracking them down would do no good.

    Other possible causes that I found seem to include the possibilty of the router misinterpreting the use of Torrent programs as Twinge attacks. One scenario also claimed that Avast antivirus program may trigger such messages. Best of luck in your research.

    I was thinking that it might be my anit virus (Avast) but it works fine and auto updates still. and no other programmes have any problems connecting to the internet.
    And i have no P2P software on my pc.
    But for now im ok the routers firewall seem to be keeping the attacker at bay, and it hasnt slowed down my internet connection.

    But i dont think its any programme on my pc because the router is bocking an outside WAN IP address.

    Unhappy Re: TWINGE ATTACK Detect

    I'm having the exact same issues with my DI-624 router... It seems that when I try to connect my XBOX with the wireless connection, it sees it as a twinge attack (i watch the xbox troubleshooter, and it seems to show up whenever it gets to the DNS configuration)...

    Also, I noticed that I can't set my system time, and have it stay current (always goes back to the 2002 date)??? I found this a bit odd too.

    If this helps.

    PS this only started happening when I updated to the newest firmware???

    UPDATE!!!

    I "downdated" the firmware to the 2.75 version, and it seems that the issues I was having before, are now gone... I'll post again in a couple days to be sure.
