I haven't been running a torrent during file transfers.

Far as I know, my wifi requires the passcode. Did for me to connect to it.

Why would my ISP be running a scan? - I've signed up for no such services. And, would they be doing it automatically when files are being transferred? - because it's the same each time with this unit.

There are only two PCs active on the network, in this case one sending, the other copying.

Again, there was no issue with my old router. Perhaps it was more isolatory?. (I could go back to the old set-up, I need wifi hardly ever, but having one unit is convenient.)

Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
