Zone Alarm Log Question

Internet connection has seemed much slower than usual over the past week or
so.  One item I happened to check was the Zone Alarm log.  What I noted was
that, under the Program Log Viewer, I have a series of entries for "Generic
Host Process for Win32 Services was blocked from accepting a connection from
the internet (192.168.1.1:Port xxxx)" where xxxx is steadily incrementing by
1 every few seconds.  From what I could look up, 192.168.1.1 can be
associated with home networks which I don't have.  There was also some info
on "black hole servers" that I couldn't follow.  Any idea what could be
causing this and whether this activity could be slowing down connection?
Running WinXP SP2 on Dell Dimension 8300 3.0 GHZ P4 and using IE7.  Current
on all MS updates.  Using Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection to a shared
T1 line (through my apartment) to connect.  No router. Zone Alarm is free
version 7.0.462.

Generic Host Process is SVCHOST.exe and is normal.

In a command prompt please type;  IPCONFIG

What is your IP address ?

IPConfig.exe shows that, or you just know that's the dynamic IP assigned
to you?

Correct.  216.176.150.135 belongs to NETNITCO who provides my internet
connection.  10.20.3.224 is what shows up on ipconfig.exe so I assume that's
a connection to their router or server ??  I'm not familiar with the
hardware or how the connection works but I know there's a closet in each
apartment building with equipment to connect each of the 8 apartments in
that building.  I believe there's also an equipment room in the main office
that connects the 30 or so buildings in the complex to the line(s) NETNITCO
provides.  I said dynamic IP because the TCP/IP properties for my connection
has "Obtain an IP address automatically" checked rather than "Use the
following IP address ..."  Perhaps that was an incorrect use of the term
"Dynamic IP address" on my part.  In the mean time, Zone Alarm is still
continuing to block svchost.exe from accepting connections from 192.168.1.1
this morning, ports 1674 to 1949 over just the past 50 minutes.
