    I looked in the router logs for the first time and noticed recently we were DoS attacked?
    should i be worried at all? I havent noticed the internet go down at all but why would someone DoS attack? Nobody has my IP except one friend who I know wouldnt dos. He only had it for a terraria server I made (which was never public and only for us two to play on)
    I dont release stuff like skype to public, only friends and so nobody could resolve my IP


    Code:
    [DoS Attack: RST Scan] from source: XX.XX.XXX.XXX, port 80, Wednesday, May 15,2013 11:23:32

    IIRC that means the router realized it was being port scanned and automatically dropped the connection, you don't need to do anything.

    There's people and groups that will scan IPs at random just to find vulnerable machines somewhere on the planet.

    Nobody opens port 80 anyway (it's used for common HTML traffic).
