I've just noticed that the firewall in my DG834GT is detecting numerous DoS attacks on the port I use for incoming bittorrent connections, when I'm downloading files via bittorrent.

Given the number reported (approx 10-20 per hour) it seems more likely that the firewall is getting false positives, does anyone know what it does then it detects DoS's? I assumed it would block all traffic from the source IP addresss for a period but I was able to ping several alleged DoS sources. If it just discards the suspect packets then that isn't such a big deal.

I tried setting up the firewall to permit all traffic to the destination port for torrents but it did not make any difference.
