    Looks like Ghosts of DLNA devices. Start by taking offline any DLNA capable gear, reboot the Gateway and also clear its IP Table.

    Also clear out those ghosts from Devices and Printers.

    For some reason this started in Windows 7, when Microsoft started to play games with DLNA and media Shares.
