I've googled around and can't really figure out what that means. I did notice that my wlan light on my router (tplink modem/router TD-W8960N) was flashing like crazy at the same time I got the alert (the alert came up 5 or 6 times within a couple minutes, unfortunately I lost power before I could get a screen shot and lost the log). I checked and no one was using wireless at the time, including any phones.

I'm using wpa2-psk with a very strong password and have since changed the password, but I'm wondering if someone managed to hack in? I changed the default login for the router when I first set it up several weeks ago.

Is this something I should worry about? Thanks.

Power cycle the modem and if it continues to work then it should be fine.
These random errors happen due to miscommunication and to me it doesnt sound like a problem.

There may also be a firmware update file you can download from the TP-link website.

Their routers are generally really good.

Thanks Ray. The error hasn't come up again so here's hoping it was a 1-time thing. Oh and I do have the latest and greatest firmware. Cheers.
