comment Is my ISP hacking me?
@obdaldh The "Class" system of IP addressing is largely considered defunct in favour of classless IP addresses. In addition, if it was a "Class A" address your subnet mask would be 255.0.0.0 (or /8) not 255.255.255.0

comment visa gift cards untraceable?
@ott-- Considering that the lions share of retailers do not take stock of the serial numbers on the bank notes as they arrive and depart, I imagine tying a serial # on bank note to an individual would be a monolithic task at best.

comment I've shared my WiFi with my neighbour. How can I ensure they're not downloading illegal content?
It should be noted, for what it's worth, all of the above measures are easily circumvented by someone who knows what they're doing. I would also note that these methods deal with blocking access to known trackers, but torrent downloads are facilitated by downloading pieces from different peers which is what makes it so difficult to block.

Admittedly, likely not much. Torrent traffic is notoriously difficult to block, even with enterprise firewalls because of the nature of how it operates. Monitoring or detecting it is typically done by monitoring the traffic and connections which, I would imagine, is beyond the capabilities of your router.

Your ability to block torrents will vary depending on your gateway device. See the following question for information on how to block torrent traffic : security.stackexchange.com/questions/42145/…
