broadcast amplification attacks on my gateway

A former member
Post #: 7
Hey guys, let me ping you on a non-PHP issue, but certainly webserver-related. My gateway is attacked perhaps 50 times/day by broadcast amplification. Each attack is comprised of hundreds of pings to the "broadcast" IP address.
? is that a common experience?
? my firewall seems to reject the attacks. Is there more I should do?
? what are the attackers trying to achieve, anyway?

peace,
Kevin
