Too much useless ARP broadcast message from router to DMZ

Hi !
I've observed (in wireshark) that when a DMZ ip address is enabled (let's say 192.168.0.40), and that the computer behind this IP is shutdown, the router send too much (10~20 by minutes) ARP broadcast messages like this :


No,Time,Source,Destination,Protocol,Length,Info
-----------------------------------------------------------------
"362","354.447306","Netgear_7a:87:0e","Broadcast","ARP","60","Who has 192.168.0.40? Tell 192.168.0.1"


This never stops until I switch on the DMZ computer...

Shouldn't there be some kind of a backoff algorithm ?

How could I thix that ?

Thanks


ps: WNDR3700 router, firmware V1.0.16.98
