Syncing computer with Insync stalles my Netgear Orbi RBK50/RBS50 based network.

I was going to sync my whole Google Drive to a new laptop using Insync. After the sync starts and runs for a minute or so the whole network slows down and then halts. In the router logs I see this:

"[DoS Attack: ARP Attack] from source:, Monday, December 09, 2019 16:33:05". is the new laptop. As soon as I stop Insync the network is back after 30 seconds or so. On another (not Nergear) network there's no such problems, but since this is my home network it's a problem I can't get around. Can't find settings on the router to disable the firewall which I assume is causing this?

The network consists of a Netgrear CL1000 modem and an Orbi RBK50/RBS50 router combo. This is a gigabit connection and there's otherwise no problems with any of our machines and phones on the network. This does not happen with DropBox. Anything I can do to prevent this from happening? I have never had problems with InSync which I have used for years.
