...good advice snipped

thanks for the ideas, it appears I was only immagining things thinking
that dhcp implied temporarely wide open interfaces, thanks god it isn't!
The down-side is that now I really really have to read up on ip-chains,
and I tried to defer it until I got a working 2.4 kernel with ip-tables.

I'm lucky, I'm on a cable modem:)
This also means I only have this unsafe moment once a day, not
really an incentive to fix it, though.
