Firewall mystery.

Hi

I am using a Mac G4 with the inbuilt firewall turned on,and a Lynksys WAG354G router connected via ethernet.Just had a look at the firewall logs for the first time in a long while and notice a few of these dotted throughout

12190 Deny TCP 192.168.1.1:2094 192.168.1.65:5001 in via en0
12190 Deny TCP 192.168.1.1:2094 192.168.1.65:5001 in via en0
12190 Deny TCP 192.168.1.1:2094 192.168.1.65:5001 in via en0

I maybe wrong here but it seems to me that my router(192.168.1.1) is trying to send something to my computer(192.168.1.65) so therefore I am assuming it is nothing to worry about........ but I am wondering what it actually is that is trying to be send and blocked,and if it is something I should be letting through the firewall or not.

Looks like virus activity so should be blocked.
