Intrusion from a private IP address? (192.168.0.3)
Using a router? Sharing information on a network amongst 2 or more machines on that network, via ther router?

Well i was wondering whether i was being hacked or something. Im not sharing anything over my network and im using wireless if that helps.

192.l68.x.x addresses are private, coming from systems connected to your router on the LAN side, nothing to worry about.

ok thanks, what are the destination IP's? are they just what it is trying to connect to?

Yes the IPs are other computers/servers.

In the case of anything in the 192.168.x.x range is on your local private network - your router will be one, your pc and any other pcs/devices will have their own local addresses in that number range.

From your screen shot your pc is 192.168.0.3 and another possibly the router is 192.168.0.2 - the column header will tell you which is calling which.

Any numbers out of this range are out on the internet - you can check who they are by using a Whois lookup. type that into google and see who the address belongs to - DON'T type the number directly into the browser address bar in case it's a bad site that it looking to infect you!

All of the IP's it was contacting were like server companies etc, like click here. So i have unblocked. Thanks everyone.
