    All 192.168.---- addresses are in your local network.

    You'll have to ask your router which computer is 192.168.0.1

    192.168.0.255 seems, to me, to be a default entry somewhere.
    Have you perhaps manually entered addresses in
    Network & sharing centre,
    Change adapter settings,
    {select adapter},
    Right-click, Properties,
    - TCP/IPv4, Properties
    and, if relevant,
    - TCP/IPv6, Properties

    Where are you seeing this.

    The .255 address is used for broadcast messages and helps all your devices find each other, Not sure why you would add a rule that your router already takes care of

    Did you see my attached screenshot in my post? Is it visible/working?

    I just have a rule that blocks all incoming connections to everything in "SimpleWall", and that one popped up as being blocked. What does it mean? Why would something try finding my computer? It's very rare that it pops up as being blocked. It's also using port 9431 for some reason from local port to remote port, both use the same port 9431.

    192.168.0.1 is my router address, I use that to be able to visit the router settings in my web browser. Did you see the image I posted? It caught that connection because I have incoming connections to "block" for everything. And that one very rarely pops up as being blocked. It's also using port 9431 for some reason from local port to remote port, both use the same port 9431. I did not change settings when that got blocked.

    Why are you blocking stuff that is internal on your LAN? As already stated the 192.168.0.255 is for router broadcast. Stop trying to break your network

    My guess is that it's a default setting in simplewall and if OP enabled it himself he might want to remove it

    No, because you posted it several hours after I replied to you.
    I sometimes find that it takes me a while to sort out pictures to add to a post but, when that happens, I add a new post to tell those who have already replied. This helps avoid misunderstandings.

    It is your router that allocates IP addresses to your computers unless you have set them up to fixed IP addresses manually.

    Im blocking all incoming connections, as i should be? By security measures, it says i need to block incoming connections. Its a system-wide block not specific to something i chose, but I guess because It's for everything it even blocks this one. So what is the best solution on blocking incoming connection, if not to all?

    And in what way is it breaking it? Everything works for me, online gaming surfing the web. So what is it breaking?

    If you arr blocking incoming for all on one computer, you are breaking it.
