Anyone ever have their routers log a DoS attack from a 192.168.x.x address on a subnet that they are not using? I'm getting intermittent DoS attacks being logged in routers log from a 192.168.x.x address. But it's not on the same subnet that I am using. Is this malware or a network intrusion? Any advice?

Make and model of yopur router ?
Provide a section of the router log file.

I have a lot of inbound traffic on the router from 192.168.x.x that are not no my network, it is probably some spoofing the ip address, most of my connection attempts are to the VPNserver, on the router.

I'm ok
A lot of commercial routers will have an option to block outside attempts that come in from private network IP's. (10.x.x.x 192.168.x.x 172.16.0.0-172.32.0.0)
It is amazing how many attempts are made on every outside IP every day.
