What is an acceptable amount of intrusion alerts in Routers Log

What is an acceptable amount of intrusion alerts in Routers Log?

 

After a reboot of BGW210 router I get 20+ INTRUSION BLOCKED notification a minute, for several minutes. 

At any time I get 1-3 Intrusion notifications, and various other non critical alerts every minute. 

Ive asked ATT to reset my external IP several times, to no avail.

This is very common in ATT. I had previously DSL and now fiber. I captured all intrusion alerts through syslog to a computer for a month and parsed it through a python program and produced a heatmap on a world map where they are all originating. Multiple countries topped the list. No prize for guessing 🙂
