    How come ZoneAlarm alerts me to outside pings every few
    minutes? I thought the router security protocols were
    supposed to stop intrusions at the router before they get
    to my PC. My friends tell me their ZoneAlarm alerts
    stopped as soon as they installed their routers, but for
    me, the alerts continue? Any thoughts?

    What firmware version are you running?

    Have you enabled discard pings on the firewall page of the MN-100?

    Is the MN-100 in router mode or bridge mode?

    Have you enabled any persistent port forwarding in your router?

    Also are the IP addresses that are pinging you behind the MN-100?

    Thank you, don't know the answer re. what firmware, but I
    will check and update if something newer is available. I
    haven't made any changes from how it came out of the
    box. And it's the only PC behind the router so the
    attempts are from the internet I assume. Appreciate the
    guidance, thank you.

    You have to log onto your base station, go to security, and
    then go to firewall settings.

    from there, check the box that says "discard ping
    commands", and you should be good to go.
