Odd "dropped packet" messages in router logs

Message 1 of 5
(5,995 Views)
 I get the following msgs, the happen repeatedly, every 8 seconds or so.

 

[INFO] Thu Jul 09 23:12:41 2009 Dropped packet from 169.254.1.150 to 169.254.1.255 (IP protocol 17) as unable to create new session
[INFO] Thu Jul 09 23:12:37 2009 Dropped packet from 169.254.1.167 to 169.254.1.255 (IP protocol 17) as unable to create new session
[INFO] Thu Jul 09 23:12:34 2009 Dropped packet from 169.254.1.41 to 169.254.1.255 (IP protocol 17) as unable to create new session
 

 

 I do not understand what this is refering too. Does anyone have ANY idea what the heck this could be -- and how to fix it?

 

 Thanks

I have investigated this matter a little further, and it seems to have something to do with the STBs for the FiOS TV portion trying to "do something".  When I uplug my NIM 100, they stop happening.  However, is this a malfuction or something i can stop from happening?  Thanks in advance

dropped packets happen all the time, on every network.    Are you having any specific issues that you think this may be causing?

I dont know if there are any.  But it seems to be clogging up the log because that series of msgs hapens every fuew seconds.  I have noticed my upload speed is not near the 5Mbps it supposed to be.  Not sure if that is related or not.

try running the Verizon optimizer.  Most optimizers improve settings for your download speeds, but, as far as I know, Verizon's is the only one that improves your settings for upload.      The optimizer may also fix the issue of the dropped packets.
