Blocked Mesh Router Connections

I have been receiving some notices that McAfee has blocked some suspicious incoming connections.  I have a Lynksys Router and 4 Mesh Velop Nodes.  When I look at the IP addresses of some of the blocked connections, 4 of the IP addresses are for the nodes.  Is McAfee blocking access from those nodes, or is there a external connection trying to get in from one of those nodes.  I'm a bit confused..  The Nodes are all part of the Mesh router system.  Occasionally, for reasons I don't understand, sometimes my nodes get knocked off the system and have to be rebooted.  Should I unblock and allow those 4 connections.  I also see the IP of the address of the Router itself has been blocked as suspicious connections as well (quite often).  I have been having intermittent loss of WiFi connectivity on my desktop.  I cycle the the connection on and off and it comes back.  Could McAfee also be causing this by blocking the router?

Looked further:  The nodes are trying to access Port 137 and the Router Port 138 if that makes a difference.

NOTE: I recently updated McAfee.

Re: Blocked Mesh Router Connections

Maybe a mod can help here. I do see many blocked connections in my settings
