Re: Logs full of DoS attacks

This has been brought up in numerous posts. One of which is here:

 

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Wireless-N-Routers/DoS-Attacks-in-Logs/td-p/1314318

 

Basically to sum up it's nothing to worry about and it's traffic on the web where people are port scanning for vunerabilities. The router is doing it's job by blocking it.

Welcome to the internet!

That said, a portscan isn't a DoS attack.

If it's no big deal, why is it logged? With so much "noise" it's hard to see teal problems.

If you don't want to see the DOS log entries, you can uncheck the box at the bottom of the log page.
