    Unless you are reloading pages way too quickly (on the order of 1000 times a second) or unless someone is cloaking their IP to make it look like yours, something is seriously screwed up. Are you sure it is actually yours?

    Just a thought, maybe they have a bad server config and it keeps trying to send too much data?

    Are you on a home connection, or at a university/business where other people are on the same network?

    Hmm, yeah, some sort of malicious software could be the culprit... do you have any anti-spyware/virus software installed? If not, it isn't hard to find free ones online.

    In that case you can block IP ranges from where attack is initiated , and if possible install apf and configure antidos , so that IP which initiat attack will get block automatically.
