    My son came home from college using his laptop on my network with a Netgear
    router. Now I regularly get this alert:

    "ZoneAlarm blocked traffic to port 2869 on your machine from port 1077 on a
    remote computer whose IP address is 192.168.1.1. This communication attempt
    may have been a port scan, or simply one of the millions of unsolicited
    commercial or network control messages that are routinely sent out over the
    Internet. Such unsolicited messages are often called Internet background
    noise."

    It's being stopped which is good but 192.168.1.1 is my router's address.

    What do I do?
