NOTE: Use a wired PC and web browser to update router FW. If continued problems are seen after a FW update, it's recommended to try a >factory reset and setup from scratch with out loading any saved configurations from backup files.

After setting up from scratch and the system is working well, be sure to save a new backup configuration to file for safe keeping and save time if another factory reset needs to be done. Saves time here:

Unfortunately, this firmware still has the issue with the false positive DoS attacks filling up the logs. Will hang on to the old firmware until this gets fixed.

What happens if you disable the logging feature for DDoS attackes while v.82 FW is loaded? 

Also how was the FW updated and did you continue to use the router after FW was applied, powered OFF the router for 1 minute then back ON or had a factory reset been performed afterwards then setup from scratch?

Even when I had logging for DoS attacks disabled, it would still take up resources. Only reason I noticed this was because I noticed that the router was slowing down/crashed by the end of the week. Also, if you turned logging back on, all the previous false positive DoS attack logs would appear right away and crash access to the log itself due to so many entries appearing there.

And if you disabling logging, do you still see DDoS log enteries or no? 

If you disable the logging for DDoS, do you notice any router mis-behaviors with logging disabled? 

Also that IP address shows it's from Amazon:
