      Hi Steve

      Your firewall is alerting you unnecessarily.

      The Sky Broadband service is provisioned on the Easynet network,
      with IP address 82.108.10.182 being that of a router interface on
      the network.

      ICMP Type 11 Code 0 messages indicate "time to live exceeded in
      transit", and will be being generated by the router concerned in
      response to traffic that your own machine is transmitting, rather
      than the other way around.

      I still don't understand why the firewall is saying it's from cr0.smba.uk.easynet.net=82.108.10.18 and not 192.168.0.1.

      Have you made any changes to the firewall settings in the router? If the router firewall is on, I don't think you should even see these messages on your PC. I have installed a trial of Look'n'Stop, I will see if it reports the same.
