Most large ISPs do scans regularly to prevent botnets from setting up camp on their bandwidth (and occasionally to catch people for the (RI/MP)AA). It's free, you don't sign up, and you don't know they're doing it unless you get caught. After all, you and I and everyone claims to be careful, but someone's clicking on these viruses.

The old router may have had a switch built-in, or it may have done a better job blocking your neighbors' packets. Who knows.
