Well, if the router doesn't give you the ability to sniff the incoming
traffic, then the easiest solution might be to set up a PC to the old
IP and then sniff IT'S traffic.  Once the router gets the ARP reply
you'll probably quickly see a direct connection from whatever other
system is trying to reach it.

Oh, and if your router is sending out THAT many ARPs for just a few
IPs, then perhaps you need a better router...  :)
