Someone is running port scanners on you. You need to tighten up your
router/firewall and for one thing block port 43 which is ICMP requests, aka,
pings and the like.

Subject: [slim] Player being pinged?

Last night and again tonight I noticed that my SLIMP3's display is
reporting that it's being pinged every minute or so. Some of the IPs
are the same, some are close to each other, all seem to be coming from
my ISP (but not my internal network).

Should I be concerned? What can I do to trace the source(s) of these
pings?

Thanks.
