My smart new router

I bought a new router with all kinds of neat firewall features. I had some trouble getting it all setup and getting good download speeds with bittorrent. Somewhere along the way I turned on a feature where the router would email me when it’s under attack. I thought that would be cool. Turns out that it also emails me whenever it detects a bad TCP packet. This happens about 100 times a day. Problem is, I can’t access my router setup page anymore. I could do a hard reset to the factory defaults and then set it up again, but now that it’s working, I’m tempted to just not mess with a good thing… but damn, I wish my router would just shut up.
