I'm seeing many errors like this in my logs. I can post more but this is a small snippet. I have a gt-ac5300 router running firmware 3.0.0.4.384.81686

You have configured your router's firewall to log dropped packets. Change it to "None".

It's background noise from the internet. All IP addresses are constantly being scanned and catalogued. For example, SHODAN knows that you have enabled web and VPN access on your router.
