- Firewall at the exchange/ISP

I recently bought a new ADSL modem router/ and the internet light more
or less flashes continually, showing probing. Can I get a reasonably
priced ISP where I can set up a decent firewall at the ISP/exhange?
Also it generally isn't worth my while tracing back the probes and
complaining to the relevant ISP/ authorities. However scripts run by
the ISP may help in prosecutions and puting a stop to unwanted traffic.
Re: Firewall at the exchange/ISP
As it happens, following on from one provided for Metronet customers,
PlusNet recently added a Broadband Firewall for customers to use. It
does depend a lot on the amount of traffic, and even which applications
you are keen to use, though, on whether this would be a suitable ISP for
general browsing/mail/newsgroups. My sister is using PlusNet, FWIW.
