I keep being reported for torrents from my high speed internet

  1. I keep being reported for torrents from my high speed internet, but it's not coming from my house. I changed my wi-fi router name and password, but keep getting the notifications. How can I keep this from happening? Is anyone else having this issue?

    Of course, Cox has provided zero assistance, except threatening to shut my internet off.

    you mention you have a son...he's probably running a TOR node.  Allowing all this traffic going through your network to combat "censorship"

      My adult son, who is a computer programmer, isn't running a TOR node because I asked him. He also has blocked all torrent sites through the modem/router, including the sites mentioned in the reports. Plus, the content being torrented, he didn't care about, I own the series on dvd, and still subscribe to the premium channel.
