Hi, I've noticed a notable amount of dos attacks in my router logs, somewhere on average of 3-5 per hour, sometimes more sometimes less. Sometimes from the same ip, sometimes it varies. The logs also show intermittent disconnects too. This is happening often when no device is connected to the router or online so its not an online gaming issue or anything like that. I can post a selection of typical activity here but I'm not sure what I can give out securely. I realise this is patchy info to respond to and I apologise for that but don't quite know what else to add.

Having incoming traffic on your router is normal even when nothing is connected is normal. . . it's the nature of the Internet. Unless it is the same IP over and over again over an extended period of time, or the volume of traffic is interfering with your connectivity, I would not worry about it.

OK, thanks for the advice. So a high level of dos attacks can be ignored? I've been hit by the same ip as much as 15 times in 30 minutes before. Just looking for reassurance I guess. Is there anything I should be doing to tighten up router security? Thanks one again for the help.

This isn't a DOS attack. For a DOS attack. . . think a minimum of 120 times what you're describing. And even that doesn't compare to any serious DOS attack. This is just background Internet noise that you're seeing.

As for anything you should be doing. . . make sure that your router does not have the default administrative username or password set for it. That's the big one.

Hope that helps.
