Security log wireless router

  suedeblue 19:26 12 May 2005

I've got a Belkin wireless router and the security log records "Smurf" followed by an ip address. Is this someone trying to gaiin access to my system?
I've got 128 wep and a firwall installled. Should I be concerned?

Don't really understand it but it looks like it may be some protection (or if I'm misreading it, an attack).

Thanks. I'm not quite sure what it is but it seems to be some sort of network trying to access my system.

suedeblue I've got a Belkin wireless router - how do you access the security log?

I can see if mine says something similar, but I haven't got WEP or WPA enabled.

I enter it via my favourites and press submit then a menu on the left side of the screen as below. It is under wan ping blocking.

What's the address in your favourites?

bosmere, thanks its sorted. I went onto netscan and have found what I needed.

The only reason I have wep is for wireless network.
