Too many internet sessions active?

I am using the DLink DIR-825 router updated with latest firmware. Clicking on internet sessions tab always displays several hundred active sessions. I see where these sessions would eventually time-out, but is all this really necessary?
I searched around and have seen where others have had trouble with this. I have yet to read an actual resolve. One suggestion was to limit internet sessions by assigning a max. number in a setup menu, but have yet to find anything like that in my router menu

Is it internet sessions or network sessions? Most routers report all network sessions. These include internet sessions, and yes, a single web page can create multiple sessions, so this is pretty normal.

I spent some more time with it today and did some IP lookup on the reported addresses. You`re right, found several for google and others just the same, multiple IP`s for one site. geez...
Thanks alot for the quick reply and i`ll just stop looking in the sessions tab.
