comment Is my modem compromised?
Stateful Packet Inspection -- it's a more thorough firewalling behaviour, even if I don't see why it should block WAN-initiated traffic. However, if true and reliable (you should check), it would prevent external access to your modem. You would still be vulnerable to drive-by attacks; changing your internal network IPs to 192.168.x.y with x not the default 0 or 1, but, say, 73, should protect against the most common drive-by attacks. While still vulnerable to a determined attack, in practice it might be enough. As with home locks, you may only need to appear stronger than your neighbour.

I am sorry, but TD-W8901G appears to be bad news. See updated answer.

comment Which format of secret would be the most efficient for human memory?
It depends on the human. Someone may have no trouble in remembering words, while another may remember easily images, smells, sounds. You might unerringly remember a formula like perfluorooctanesulfonic.nitrolysis.of.hexamethylenetetramine; I could use 33+0/6 as a shorthand for "Virgin.humble.term.You.ennobled.not".

comment Do you keep using a compromised gmail account?
I would also run a search on the available mail on the account for passwords, license keys, account numbers, and anything that might have leaked.
