      You've just picked up an IP that was previously used by someone else. Note the different destination port (1443) this time, possibly relating to SQL server use by the previous owner. If not that then your system is being probed for an open SQL port. These things happens all the time when using the internet.

      Honestly, don't worry about it

      the internet is full of people just running IP scans looking for unsecured networks.

      If your router supports it you could turn on ping blocking.

      But as everybody else says it's fine the router is doing it's job.
