Strange ip address in R8000 log

I have a lot of strange ip address entries showing in this mornings log.  Could this be my modem indicating a internet crash?

There are a lot more and another disconnect/reconnect.

Anyone got a idea if this is bad, normal or unimportant?

That ip address is something that is connected to your network and typically if its a 192.168.100 Ip that's the modems IP.

Hi Darren

Thanks for that.  On further investigation it appears that the internet went down and it was the modem trying to restore the connection.  It was only strange because the modem ip is x.x.x.1 not .20.
