Blocked Connection Attempts - Hacker attempts?

Discussion in 'Broadband Hardware' started by =?Utf-8?B?Umlja0lzQnVnZ2Vk?=, May 5, 2006.

  1. I am experiencing very slow internet access today so I went to look at the
    MN-500 basestation log. There are apparent attempts to get to my network as I
    see repeated (like every few seconds) the following in the log:

    2006/05/04 20:18:41 Connection attempt to base station from WAN blocked --
    src:<> dst:<>

    I set the ping option to disallow pings but I still get the above along with
    the following:

    2006/05/04 20:18:18 Client filtering settings blocked connection from IP
    address <>

    Anyone know what's up? Is someone trying to hack in?

    That's your firewall on the base station blocking external access attempts.
    Perfectly normal, and a good thing you're protected. There are more nasty
    people on the Internet than you might think.
