WNDR4300 Admin Login Failure - Is someone trying to get in to my router?

Recently I started getting this message on my router log. My laptop is not the same ip as this message. Is someone trying to get into my router? Also, may be coincidence but, it seems to have started after Netgear helped me set up my new Netgear modem CM400, I have had the router for a couple years. My laptop ip ends with a 5 and not a 6. Any ideas. I am not a huge techy but can understand a little bit. Thanks

Another thing. For a few days I started disconnecting from the network at night and wouldn't login until later in the morning as these failures were coming at like 7:30 and 8am. But it seemed to figure that out and then tried tonight. It only seems to be happening once a day. I have Windows 8.1.

 Have you changed the routers wirieless passphase?  All default passwords should be changed when a new router is put on the network..

The Netgear router is 2 yrs old, the Netgear modem is new. Since problem started I have changed the router password, but not the network passphrase. I have made them very complicated and have set router settings to only allow mac address in that I approve. They aren't getting in but something/someon is trying really trying.

You may check Attached devices of your router to see who is .6 IP address.

You can also block specific devices by using MAC Filtering.
