I would suspect that it's the Wireless Zero Configuation service using ndisuio.sys.

Try this:

Go to Administrative Tools/Services and find the Wireless Zero
Configuration and disable it.

Check the Dependencies and see whether it's that it's using NDIS.

You should be able to enable it again if it doesn't stop the Internet access request or if it causes you a problem with your wired connection..

Post back if it works or you still need help. BTW, I would edit out the email address link unless you like spam.

I'm not familiar with router logs, but DOS means Denial of Service (PDF). In another context Disk Operating System, Dept. of State and on and on!
