    I activated AiProtection for the first time a few days ago, and right away I noticed that I've been getting a lot of hits under "Two-way IPS". The hits basically all come from the same address. It's very unnerving, and being a router newbie I don't know what else I can do (eg I notice that under "firewall" I can block certain URL, but I don't know if that's what I should be doing here, and if so, how). Your helps and suggestions are most appreciative.

    You don't need to do anything , anything listed by AiProtection has been stopped before it got to your firewall , it has done its job.

    But on a more serious note, that ip 46.101.47.221 is constantly hitting my AI protection here in the UK. What gives?

    It's a bot by the look of things .

    https://www.abuseipdb.com/check/46.101.47.221

    I have 73 hits from that IP.

    Point is AI Protection stopped it reaching your firewall. My neighbour has an AC5300 and doesn't use AI , that IP bounces off his router firewall , if your firmware is up to date there isn't a problem.

    If u installed Skynet, you will realised there are lots of noise knocking at your router.
    Currently I have massive port scanning on my isp range...
    Like 2100 scan per hour.

    I don't need a 3rd party app to be able to see that , the router log shows the same thing.

    Port scanning goes on all year and always has.
