Just wanted to clarify to others that despite the thread title, these entries are not confined to the mega build. They're in my SP1 VPN build as well (10011).
Even if they are harmless, is there a way I can remove them short of flashing new firmware?
I checked my 10061 mini_generic build earlier...they are NOT in this build.
I don't know if this is stored in a variable someplace...without it installed on mine...I can't find it...try a telnet session and grep the nvram for those addresses....it might be possible to do an "nvram unset" from there.
[EDIT] - I just did a remote login and checked my home router...it is not in the 10011 - std build either.

if [ -z "$LINE2" ]
echo Errant 126.96.36.199 rule not found.
iptables -D INPUT $LINE2
echo Errant 188.8.131.52 rule removed.
Now just hit the "Save Custom Script" button.
Every 30 minutes your router will check to see if the bad rules are there and remove them.
You may wonder why use a cron job instead of the startup or, more appropriately, the firewall script option.
Well it seems that the startup script runs before the firewall is initiated. And the firewall script will run before the system adds these bad rules in.
Every time the firewall restarts or, of course, whenever the router reboots, the rules will pop back up, though neither should happen very often.
