Systemantec Client Firewall and my modem

Recently I've been getting security alerts from my Systemantec Client Firewall saying that a "remote" computer has been trying to access mine, but I'm not sure if it really is. This is what the log says:

Rule "Default Block Bla Trojan horse" blocked (PRIME(192.168.1.46),1042).
Inbound UDP packet.
Local address,service is (localhost,1042).
Remote address,service is (PRIME(192.168.1.46),1042).
Process name is "N/A".


However, when I type "ipconfig" in my command prompt box, I see that my IP adress is exactly 192.168.1.46, while the firewall says that it has blocked it. I've been recently getting some minor problems with my external cable modem (It's a WESTELL Versalink327W to be specific) such as not being able to have my laptop computer connect with it wirelessly even though it has been able to before.

I'm not sure if the firewall is blocking off something that is actually not really a threat but rather a normal procedure. Could the matching IP adresses in both my adress and the one that is blocking have something to do with this, or is that totally different?

Thanks a bunch in advance.

if you disable the firewall...do you still have the same issues with the other computer?
