I have been having a lot of trouble with DDos Attacks on our schools network shutting down connection to the server and modem. I recently got two Netgear ProSafe Switches with DDos attack prevention. Almost as soon as I enable this feature I get a message like this:

<11> Oct 14 08:44:04 10.0.53.15-1 DOS[53979692]: dos_api.c(1844) 4447 %% Interface g39 has been shut down by Dos attack notification

Both printers are Lexmark. A T430 and Optra S 1650.

I have tried disabling all network settings except TCP/IP. (LexLink, AppleTalk, Netware).

I have also reset to factory settings on both the printer and the network card, but immediately get blocked by the switch.

Any suggestions for settings that could prevent these problems?

Thanks!
