On the time dimension it's not really a "flood" since items appear only every few seconds, not continuously. Still, it makes for huge blocks of these items when the log is opened for viewing. Because of the "kernel" I'm guessing it's the built-in firewall generating them. Regardless, unless they're useful in some way I should know about, I'd like to know if they can be suppressed.

I have the same question about these items:

I don't have even a guess as to what's generating those, but the MAC is that of my iPhone. :(

These are Skynets blocked IP logging, this can be disabled in your settings at the expense of the stats feature (and useful debugging!)

Ah! Now I'm curious as to why they say "kernel:" rather than "Skynet:"?

Because technically IPTables is generating the log entry (Skynet creates IPTables rules to handle both blocking and logging).

Try restarting your iphone.

Is the MAC address a clone on the WAN page?

Done. But looking afterwards reveals that I happened to pick a bunch of log items with my iPhone's MAC, but there are other similar groupings with other MACs repeated in a bunch.

No, it's the MAC address of my iPhone. But see also my reply just previous to this one. I haven't noticed the MAC clone on my WAN page in log items.

I just don’t think you should expect to see your iPhone MAC address on an incoming block. Somehow the router thinks the iPhone MAC is your router MAC.

It’s not in an incoming block. At the end of my OP I asked about a different kind of items, wlceventd. The iPhone MAC was in the cluster of those that I happened to post.

The wlceventd logging issue has many threads - try this link for answers ..

Short answer - in Asus closed code they left the logging at "debug" level for this issue ... so we all ignore them - and preferably use Scribe add-on [available in amtm] to drop them in their own log so can easily be ignored and no longer clutter Syslog.

From time to time my iPhone also causes an unusually large amount of wlceventd events, honestly after a reboot or IOS upgrade. Sometime it calms down, sometimes it doesn't. I realize it has nothing to do with the router - it's just logging low level Wi-Fi events. I also don't see anything apparently wrong with my iPhone's network stability.

That said, if it doesn't calm down I'll 'Forget' the network and connect back. This always stops the noise. It's like IOS detects or learns something about location/proximity to the associated AP and decides it needs to adjust something with the signal... This is all assumed of course, no-one know what these devices' network stacks really do.
