I saw your post from the att forum dated back in Sept 2016. So your router
detected a php hijacking and blocked the packet. That's ok.  But.. I would
guess your getting attacked all around and over loading your router. If you
have a consumer-grade router. I would call att and see if they have anyway
of looking to see if your being attacked. Getting a new IP address should
help. Login to your router check to see what your WAN/Public IP address.


Try powering off your Router and ASL Node for 3-5 minutes.

Some hackers testing your IP address and router.

The power off is to hopefully get a new IP address.

Google online port scanner. Find one a scan your router to see if any of
your ports our open. It should show no port. Filtered ports are bad as well.

PS: If your into playing with routers and making your own. Try OPNsense.
