DLink Wireless Access Point broadcasts UDP

DLink Wireless Access Point broadcasts UDP

Hi all,

I've just had a very frustrating phone conversation with a DLink tech guy who basically told me this doesn't happen.  Figured I'd turn to my friends instead.

We've got a number of DLink Wireless Access Points (DWL-7000AP and DWL-7100AP mainly) that according to wireshark are broadcasting UDP left right and centre:

Protocol: UDP
Source port: cap or blackjack or 1027
Destination port: 64512

Anybody know why this is happening and what it's meant to do?  Source is from the access point (e.g. to a destination of (broadcast on a /24, I believe).

Any info appreciated as I really could do with ditching the extra traffic :)  Wireshark screenie available on request.
