    From what I can tell, this is just gibberish they seem to be unwilling or incapable of suppressing. I look in my router logs all the time and they are full of garbage. No way to stop it over several firmware updates too. So if I'm looking for something really significant I should be actually worried about, I can't find it since the log is full of garbage.

    I will add I'm just a simple router user. It allows me and my devices to connect to the internet and that's it. No special routing, no QoS settings, no major changes to the settings. Just mostly defaults with some items changed for safety etc. Standard stuff. And yet the logs are full of stuff I've never seen in the logs of other routers.

    I wish they would turn all that debugging stuff off.
