Maybe all routers aren't created equal, but I installed the DI604 yesterday and today Norton logged this:

Trojan attempt detected from address by rule "Default Block Bla Trojan horse". Inbound UDP packet

And, curiously, ARIN says:

Search results for:

AGIS ALERON-204-157 (NET-204-157-0-0-1) -
Defender Technologies Group, LLC DEFENDER-204-157-1-0-24 (NET-204-157-1-0-1) -

A Yahoo search:

More from ARIN:

THe really odd thing about all this is that the Norton alert log doesn't show my actual IP as the "local address." It shows this:

OrgName: Internet Assigned Numbers Authority
Address: 4676 Admiralty Way, Suite 330
City: Marina del Rey
StateProv: CA

Man, this networking stuff is just kooky.

Heh, that is your "real" IP address. You're behind a router with NAT (Network Address Translation), which assigns your machine an address in a block of IPs exclusively reserved for machines behind routers, and thus can be duplicated all over the world with no ill effects on the Internet itself.

The 192.168.x.x range is reserved for NAT, as is 10.x.x.x.
Signature file is under revision. This will be back shortly.

Heh, this is virtually indistinguishable from magic.

Should I get a copy of Networking for Dummies? Or just go with the assumption that the router is adding a layer to my defenses and otherwise not worry about it?

Definitely get a copy of networking for dummies, plus one on network computer security.
