    From wikipedia, a smurf attack is a flood of icmp packets. ICMP is layer 3 so there are no source and destination ports, unlike TCP or UDP, but do have type and code included in the packet header.

    You could set your router to drop ping requests coming from the WAN side (the connection to the internet) if there is a setting for this.

    Maybe some connection has not ended well.Some kind of false alarm as if flood occurs for real connections may be lost or the router might crash and loose logs.
