HG659 and ARP storm

Hi,

 

sometimes the HG659 goes mad and starts storming my home network with arp requests:

 

21:58:10.562870 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.7 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.568433 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.4 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.575742 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.3 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.581878 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.6 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.614877 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.7 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.620653 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.4 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.624076 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.3 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.630434 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.6 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.703030 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.7 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.708262 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.4 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.714015 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.3 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46
21:58:10.720151 ARP, Request who-has 192.168.1.6 tell 192.168.1.111, length 46

 

It creates ~3KB/s constant load.

 

It annoys.

 

Reboot helps, but I'm curious has anyone else experienced that as well? Or may be there is even a firmware upgrade that fixes it?

 

Thanks

 

PS: at this very moment some of those 4 addresses are in the network and send the corresponding arp-replies.

latest firmware here if you want

It doesn't fix that bug though. The Arps stop after a while, so not a big impact.
