    I just upgraded my WAG54G V1.2 from firmware 1.01.6 to 1.02.7.

    I noticed that the firewall log now shows a lot less entries than it did before. It used to show all incoming (and outgoing) traffic. Particularly it showed that it blocked 10 or 20 incoming requests per hour mainly from other IP addresses at my ISP, which was useful to monitor.

    Now it shows only events marked as "Invalid TCP packet received, dropping packet ". The ones that were previously shown as blocked don't appear at all.

    What happened to the other incoming requests? Were they blocked but not shown in the log? I don't see them in my Norton Internet Security logs so I assume they were blocked.

    And what are the firewall rules anyway? Are they listed somewhere?
