NetGear DG834 and unsolicited packets?

I just ran through the GRC.COM's shields-up! pages and had several of my ports probed, on that test, my PC passed with TruStealth passed. However when I go to just common ports or user-defined ports, it tells me that TruStealth failed because my system responded with a 'counter-probe' of it's own when it was probed... this is annoying me a little that my supposedly 'secure' firewall/router is actually giving out my internet location to port-probers, despite the fact the port-probes themselves get blocked... why is it sending counter-probes and how... do I stop it? I've ran these tests before w/o the router and with ZoneAlarm instead and I've always passed this.

Any ideas or thoughts anyone?
