    What firewall are you using (if any)?
    When you say the effects of the attack do you mean that these actually
    happened to you?
    How have you discovered the ip?

    IMPORTANT: 224.0.0.22 is a multicast address. i.e. not an actual PC but an
    IP address used when someone wants to broadcast to all PC's on a network.
    For example, if I wanted to ping everyone on my LAN, then I would ping
    224.0.0.1. All addresses in the form : 224.0.0.x are of this type. It is not
    an actual machine. Are you on a LAN? If so it may be another computer on the
    LAN, either infected or sending benign packets to you. Otherwise I may be
    your ISP checking up on you? What port were the attacks on?

    If you're not using a firewall (I don't count the firewall built into WinXP
    is this is offers only basic protection) I would recommend getting a decent
    firewall such as Norton Firewall 2003 regardless of if you think you're
    being attacked at all.
    In case this is an attack, I would monitor network / internet communications
    and/or wait till you've got a decent firewall running.

    Hope this answers your question!
