Firewall Query

I have my router (Netgear DG834GT) firewall set to the default settings (block always for inbound services). However an occasional attempt to connect gets through and is blocked by my McAfee firewall. How do these get though the router firewall? I have had a look and there is no pattern in terms of the ports that are trying to be connected to. I have also not configured the router to have any specific ports open.

What are these "occasional attempt to connect"?

"I have also not configured the router to have any specific ports open."
Some ports must be open, even though they may appear stealthed in a port scan, they must open or you couldn't use the internet.

This probably comes down to the software you're running, P2P, game(s)?

Without knowing what inbound traffic your software firewall is detecting it's difficult to offer more help.
