dmesg flooded with ethernet output


Hello,
in my new laptop, which I've been given by my university, dmesg is flooded with output from something related to my ethernet device connected to the pc via usbc (the card is inside a docking station). There is so much output, with new lines every few seconds, that all other dmesg output is cut and I cannot analyse anything. This is an example of the output I'm getting in dmesg:

Code:
[ 1198.395427] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=27455 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152 
[ 1198.397100] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=27456 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152 
[ 1198.397140] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=27457 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152 
[ 1198.397175] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=130.238.201.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=24623 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152 
[ 1198.397207] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=27458 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152 
[ 1198.397313] IN=enxd481d722c5d2 OUT= MAC=ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:a4:4c:c8:b4:1f:8b:08:00 SRC=130.238.201.60 DST=255.255.255.255 LEN=172 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=128 ID=27459 PROTO=UDP SPT=17500 DPT=17500 LEN=152
where enxd481d722c5d2 is the ethernet card in the docking station. Every now and then there is a similar line coming from the wireless card as well.

Can anybody help me to figure out what this output is, if it's a problem (and hence how to solve it) or how to suppress it if it's not related to an issue? Thanks everyone in advance.

Looks like broadcast packets from a dropbox client in your network.
Maybe this could be of help in your case

Great call! I've disabled the dropbox function and the messages have disappeared. Thanks!
