Unknown taredo in port range forwarding

Hello, my wireless internet connection started disconnecting frequently while I noticed that the cable computers hooked to the router didn't disconnect. I went into the router and noticed in the port forwarding section unknown information about taredo application and a series of start end port range all the way to the bottom. My question is it possible someone did this getting into the router and then to pc 192.168.1.100.

Please see the screen attached, I unchecked 192.168.1.100

Thanks

Teredo alleviates this problem by encapsulating IPv6 packets within UDP/IPv4 datagrams, which most NATs can forward properly. Thus, IPv6-aware hosts behind NATs can be used as Teredo tunnel endpoints even when they don't have a dedicated public IPv4 address. In effect, a host implementing Teredo can gain IPv6 connectivity with no cooperation from the local network environment.

that seems to be the reason for all these udp ports.

Do a malware scan if something is masking as ipv6. You could give the free scanner from www.prevx.com a try.

this sounds like ipv6 for me:

You could disable ipv6 on your computer.
