[App_rpt-users] Got a strange error in my AT&T gateway

No it's not AT&T's network.

What is the reason that the gateway (your router) hijacked the packet? Is
the packet malformed? Did the packet get hijacked by an internal or
external system? I can't remember if stats.allstarlink.org/uhandler.php
sends back a response or not. Why, if it does send a response back. Then it
could be an external problem. If it doesn't then it is an internal problem.
Or just get a better router that doesn't freak out over a this common
problem. What model router do you have?


Thanks, David

They are stating that the **Gateway** has hijacked the connection, and is providing responses.  It does not mean that an external party has hijacked the connection.  The gateway does this to send you error messages (i.e. in your browser), but it usually causes more harm than it does good.*"
