Router logs for dummies.... [DoS Attack: ACK Scan] from source: ???

Hi,
Why would I have entries like this in my NetGear WNR2200 Router Log?
[DoS Attack: ACK Scan] from source: 84.93.230.178, port 80, Monday, February 27,2012 16:34:20.
I've had loads and just did a tracert to the IP and it's linked to the PN Community pages which I have been reading this afternoon.
Need I be concerned?
Pete

Hi Cathotel,
This is something that Netgears can do. It's nothing to worry about. A reboot will probably cure that.

Thanks JoJo,
Did a bit of research (well, Googling !) and it seems NetGear are fully paid up members of the 'Conspiracy Club'.
Cheers,
Pete
