Fragmentation and SYN floods - problem?

Hi,

I notice from my router logs that I am getting a heck of a lot of these attacks (?) described by the 3Com router as 'SYN flood' or 'Fragmentation flood' and reports an untraceable IP address and a port number. It always seems to be when my kid is playing an online game called Runescape although that may be coincidental since he's on it a lot!

It looks like my router/firewall is catching these every time but should I be worried about these?

I wouldn't be worried, if he's playing in online mode it will just be the other players communicating with his computer.
