[Business] SMC Business Gateway - uPnP broadcast?

I have my Business Gateway configured to pass back everything to a Linksys router behind it. Lately in the Linksys' logs, I'm seeing uPnP packets from the Gateway being dropped once a minute or so:

Jan 30 19:13:55 am-homeedge user.warn kernel: DROP IN=vlan2 OUT= MAC= SRC=10.1.10.1 DST=239.255.255.250 LEN=293 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=1 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=1026 DPT=1900 LEN=273

10.1.10.1 in this case, is my gateway, firing off to the broadcast domain over udp/1900 (which I believe to be uPnP).

Why would the SMC Gateway device want to do this, and can I turn it off? Not that it's a problem really, just annoying to see over and over in the logs.

I can't imagine why it would all-of-a-sudden start doing it out of the clear blue when it hadn't been doing it before, but, according to the search I just ran, it can be turned off in the SMC8014.
