DoS Attacks in Logs

Is it normal to see so many "DoS Attack: SYN/ACK Scan" in the router logs? I have AT&T GigaPower.

well ether devices on your lan that have been torrenting or if you are on a dynamic ip address from your isp it could be who ever last had the ip address , its a pretty commoin thing to see in logs and is just identified wrong , if it does get worse prob time to get someone look into it and assess the security implications

generally these are just torrents that have been closed and peers are trying to still connect to your ip address
