My first suggestion is installing a copy of comando firewall. I use the free edition but I highly recommend the paid for one. This software is really great at detecting real-time threats. You can even trace the IP of the origin of an attacker.
Also I run a virtual machine of backtrack 5 r3,, which has two amazing applications that are sent from the tech gods!
EtherApa ---this program allows you to see real-time connections, allows you to get a visual representation of your network, and of all connections coming into your network.
Zenmap --- this program will scan your network and collect information about, and will allow you to "poke" at any incoming IP's.
oh and remember Google is your friend. use it!
