The packets will only go there if they are a) specifically addressed to the
router, or b) the packets are destined for an address outside of the local
By the ports you mentioned I assume you are using Windows. It is possible
to disable the "Client for Microsoft Networks" for those NICs on the LAN -
once that is done they will not send out or respond to those packets. I
will also assume that if you use a crossover cable and put the machines
back-to-back they will not see each other, chances are, then, that Client
for Microsoft Networks is not enabled, possibly File and Print Sharing (?).
