    In the log, under type, there is ETH beside ICMP, TCP, UDP types.
    What is this? With ETH type I can not do anything except view information about it.

    Actually I don't feel any difficulty using internet, even if there are bunch of
    logs. But I am uneasy. I would like to remove the message from the log.
    Is there anybody who knows what ETH means and how to remove the messages from the log view.

    When ETH type appears, MAC address is shown up instead of numorus ip address in address/application view likewise 00:C0:26:6F:AE:6B.

    In Additional, those message come up; Type Ethernet:0054, Type Ethernet:0026.

    I feel like this is not normal. Is there any way to solve this problem?

    Could you post some samples form your logs?
    LnS will block other protocols in addition to filtering ICMP, TCP and UDP commonly used on the Internet. A list of protocol numbers. Are you on an network of any sort or connected direct to the Internet?

    Edit: A number of these other protocols do not use IP addresses, thus why you see MAC addresses only, and why I was asking if you were on a network.
