I cut all the answers short, hoping that you read to the bottom.

I didn't.  The first time I wrote it, it never posted, but a
different post did. so I resent it.  At which point, they
BOTH appeared. Dude, ...why so hostile? It's a whole lot simpler than
that.  Maybe a glitch in my email program.  Thinking about posting
about it.

This is obvious - I am actually looking for an exploit. The thing
 I need to do is rule out wireshark.

Two things I found interesting.  The first is that you suggested I use
wireshark.  When Wireshark was what informed me it was putty.  Which is
starting to look like ....the second thing I found interesting, Why so

Wireshark gave me an IP and that the connection was from putty, 
Whois and google told me that its a mobile communications
nmap gave me: Ports open include some windows ports...

conclusion:  A port scaning script running off some windows laptop or
tablet, exploiting putty. on a network which seems to come from China.

[China] which means ....Some one in my neighborhood is passing around
hacking software to the "kiddies"  ...again. YES, a pattern on my
network.  (and with *my* neighbors)

Pease, keep all that hostility to yourself!

As far as what you typed above about ...putty being interesting,
 I thought you were actually gonna give me more insite on my issue?!?

> Somebody already answered the first time you asked this question. 

Honestly? ....look I am  deleting what I originally wrote for the
response, the world has enough negativity in it already, I aint gonna
add to it.
