Subject: RE: [WISPA] Network Storm
It is probably peer to peer traffic. That can take a network down very quickly. You will have to hunt down which user is hammering your network. Probably BitTorrent traffic if I were guessing.

I am having a network storm, the first. All activity light switches on the wireless net are flashing like crazy, both at the data center and customer sites, may not mean much, but it has not happened before. There is a huge amount of traffic on the canopy sys. Others have discussed an ICMP storm w/ a (0.0.0.0) address that comes from Linksys & Netgear routers. There are about 20 on my net, of 90 users.
I am a know-nothing at this, and really a hardware/RF guy. Not familiar with Ethereal or other SW that monitors the net. What are you all using? Where do I get it? What are your thoughts and advice?
Any help or advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated. I'll do whatever you all advise.
