NETGEAR DG834G Log

I happened to look at my Netgear log this morning and saw this entry: -

Thu, 2007-06-14 16:08:32 - UDP Packet - Source:216.49.201.43,12340 Destination:86.155.247.18,2990 - [DOS]


Can anyone tell me what it is please?

Its the router being too cautious in what it is seeing and 'thinking' its a DOS (denial Of Service) attack when in fact it is not. If it were a real DOS attack you would see 1000s of entries but in fact you only see a few.

Just disable the DOS detection in the router as I have, it just causes alarm when there is none and does not in fact work.

Thank you both for that; I feared it might have been something sinister.
