Blocked Connection Attempts - Hacker attempts?

  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:<64.12.161.131:5190> dst:<71.112.33.120:1327>

    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 <71.114.2.111>


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

    Thanks,
    Rick

    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.
