DOS attacks



Just bought my first netgear product. The D7000.


While looking in the logs I see TONS of DOS attacks.


Should I be worried?


How do I stop this.


I'm on a MAC.


I also have Norton Security installed and it's working ok.

    We all get this. Change IP address of box.

    Set up strong passwords and I mean strong.

    I use 164 combos for passwords.

    Change name of net work.

    Do not use the same passwords for every account.

    Many of these are Robo attacks just looking for a sucker.

    Example. You leave your keys in your car and I do not.

    Whose car will they take.
