So this is my residential router is a netgear gateway C3700-100NAS with Spectrum Internet. Usually I have no problems. But every so often, intermittently and not very predictable, I would notice my Internet slow down to a crawl, and even pinging 8.8.8.8 or www.yahoo.com will time out or have insane times.

I checked my netgear gateway C3700-100NAS logs and saw this.... Apparently in the span of less than a minute or so there were hundreds of entries for Source of "140.3.230.0" and Target/Destination of "149.104.249.105". Neither of these IPs have anything to do with my residential IP address nor would/should any device on my network be sending nor receiving anything to or from any of these IP addresses.

Based on a simple lookup it appears that 149.104.249.105 is Location is Washington D.C. (Northwest Washington), District of Columbia US - ISP is Cogent Communications and that 140.3.230.0 is Location is Columbus, Ohio US - ISP is DoD Network Information Center.

Can anyone have any idea what is going on?
