Sounds like maybe your router just took a poo and threw up an error message.

If I'm not mistaken your Broadcast IPs are and

Something about an invalid ICMP error.. thats just another internet protocol.. so i dont really know.

Just trying to help by giving you some basic info.
If it doesnt happen again, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Go to the upper right corner of the website,
hit the search button. Enter invalid icmp error.
I searched google, and found that a couple of
users also had this problem. Their fix was to add
a line to a /proc file. I didn't copy it down or anything
but they have it on the site.
