please see attached log file.  It says my router is being attacked but how can i tell if they are getting through.  Every now and then the blue lock on my wireless router will flash amber until i reset it.  I have changed my pw's on both the router login and wpa2 aes as well.  The attached is recent attacks since i have changed the pw's.  how can i tell if they are accessing my wireless and if so how can i block them?

Typical behaviour of torrent clients, seen it before at other peoples (modem) firewalls and wireless routers. It could take some time before the messages to away because the clients will keep on trying for some time to reach your client.

Looks to me that your device is already blocking them, hence the "Found attack from" lines. You could have a look at you modem and see if you can enable a firewall there.
