    This happens few times everyday. My default router IP is 192.168.1.1

    Here is the screenshot I took:

    What could this possibly be?


    Thanks.


    EDIT: could this be a computer within my house? I only have a router, but didn't setup a local network.

    Hello,

    Although TCP port 5357 can be used by some malware, according to this reference, it looks like the device at 192.168.1.10 is running Web Services for Devices (WSD).

    It could be a computer, but could also be some other device on the network, liike a camera, printer, scanner, NAS appliance and so forth.

    Regards,

    Aryeh Goretsky
