Rogers is the cable company in Canada that is managing the @HOME stuff.

NS.ON.ROGERS.WAVE.CA24.112.32.2 is likely a server in Ontario and NS.BC.ROGERS.WAVE.CA24.112.31.254 is likely a server in British Columbia. @HOME owns the whole 24.xxx.xxx.xxx range.

If you were hit by just a single IP I would guess it was just a regular user. If you were spidered it might be a home grown spider that someone is running for fun.

>> my firewall gets about 1 of these every hour

Might this be related to the problem discussed on another thread, where the "www" must be included?
