A netstat -d should do the trick. If you need more info then man netstat.

Try: netstat -tupan
My lights on the ADSL modem are blinking just like yours, but the stuff is being stopped at the router. According to the routers log it's mostly to ports 135 and 445, namely MS NetBios getting probed by some bots and scripts. Somehow I'm not too worried about this , especially since iptables blocks them as well.
