    Yeah you have two IP's, your private or LAN IP which usually looks like this: 192.168.x.x, and your public or WAN IP which can vary. If your router forwards specific ports to your LAN IP, then you're at risk (however small), and your specific computer can be targetted, but since I'm sure your husband knows what he's doing you won't have any problems

    Exactly. You were completely right to warn people about the fact that for most people out there, IP's are out there for anyone to see.

    I'm sorry FG, I'm not sure I understand what you're asking for.

    Well I can see that little sign in the post john started with, but then other people are talking about seeing other signs or that it refreshes and changes. Where does it do that?

    Oh ok. Well the sign John posted is actually not a unique picture. It's a different one for everybody else. The numbers you'll see on it are different than the ones that I will see, even though John is linking to the same picture! It's actually a neat little trick. So everybody here is just talking about seeing different versions of that one picture. Just keep refreshing the first page of this thread to start seeing little guys holding the sign up like a troll or a mouse etc...

    ETA: Oh BTW SG sorry, looking over my latest post It looks like I might mean to say that your husband would be the only one knowing how to set up your network, but you obviously know exactly what's going on. Sorry if I made it seem that way.
