Google is pinging my router?

I just set up a NetGear prosafe VPN Firewall. It is currently a part of the network, but is not directing traffic in any sort of way yet. I am doing this for configuration purposes.

I have the router configured to e-mail me if it detects port scanning of DoS attacks. I did not expect to see any hits on this router, but sure enough, in my e-mail I am getting a message warning me of port scanning.

the IP address is I checked it and I do get routed to, i did a reverse lookup as well and everything leads me to google. It appears to be hitting different ports a lot of the time, but it always hits the ip address that this router is on.

Why is google scanning for open ports so far down my network steam? and does anyone else seem to have this problem?
