My router system log is recording a large number of entries like this (I've replaced the IP addresses and MC addresses):

Jun 13 18:57:33 MYNTWK user.warn kernel: [DROP INVALID WAN] : IN=vlan2 OUT= MAC=[MY ROUTER MAC ADDRESS] SRC=foreign.ip.address DST=router.external.ipaddrss LEN=52 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=83 ID=23220 DF PROTO=TCP SPT=80 DPT=63168 SEQ=1280707011 ACK=2810858

What's going on here?

I get those too. It just looks like the firewall is doing its job.

So these are just incoming packets being dropped?

Is there any way to turn the logging off? My system.log is getting thousands and thousands of these entries.
