I recently read the man page for ping and learned some cool stuff worthy of sharing.

Protecting Your Mac from Network Attacks
Hello, I'm hoping someone here can help me, as I'm at my wit's end with this issue. I use Time Warner high-speed internet. What would happen is that my internet would run at normal speed for a couple of minutes, then suffer severe lag pages would not load, partially load or just time out before loading for several minutes. Then things would return to normal for a minute or two, only for the process to repeat itself. I've been on the phone with Time Warner times in the last week.
Initially, they just changed the "channel" of my router.
After the second call, they sent a technician out who checked all of the fittings and replaced the router. Three days ago, I had to call Time Warner again because the issue was still not resolved.
SYN Flood (DOS Attack) from my MacBook Pro | MacRumors Forums
The Level 3 tech who I spoke to told me that he was seeing activity consistent with a "denial of service" attack coming from the one PC an HP laptop that I have here at the house. He instructed me to turn off that machine, which I did. For about 12 hours, it seemed like this was the solution. Then, yesterday, I began having the exact same problems.
Note that the HP laptop has been turned off this entire time. Once again, I got on the phone with Time Warner. We changed the network name, the network password, etc So at this point, all devices were disconnected from the network.
Then he had me add on just one device my MacBook Pro which I use most frequently back to the network. For an hour, it ran fine. Then, BAM I logged into the router settings and in the logs, I can see where it is hitting the router with SYN Flood. There are two listed one where the count is 94 and one where the count is I've been doing some Googling and I found an article which indicated that I could use a Terminal command lsof -i to see all active connections.
I have done that and it returns a long list of commands, the large majority at least 80 of which are listed as "Google. I saved this info to a PDF file, and I am happy to post it here I'm at a loss of what to do next. I did download and install ClamXav per the advice found on another board.
I ran a scan on my machine and, while it found errors, it says there are 0 infected files. Can anyone help? Maybe I'm wrong about that I don't know at this point. SandboxGeneral Moderator emeritus.
