8054 logging dropped packet errors ??

8054 logging dropped packet errors ??

(OP)
8054 running 1.21h
I'm getting Dropped UDP, TCP, etc. packet errors and the note in the log mentions my default deny rule. I use MAC filtering to limit access and have only 1 DENY firewall rule: Action: DENY, Timeout: 300, Name: default, source: *,* destination: LAN,* Protocol: IP(0),*

What's up? They're logging about every 5 minutes. Any suggestions?  Is somebody trying to hack into my LAN?

RE: 8054 logging dropped packet errors ??

Those packets are most likely being dropped do to the default rules. The USR 8054 has default settings to drop inbound packets if there is no rule to allow them, such as inbound icmp. Port 1026 and 1027 are common these days. Your probably seeing scans looking for open ports in some of the logs, particularly if the source is the same address hitting different ports on your router.

If you post a bit of the log (minus your ip) that you are concerned with I could give you more info.
