Do you have any other computer attached to your network?

192.168.~~~~ is a private IP meaning its orginating from your network.

On the other PC's you would go Run>cmd

In the window Type
ipconfig

hit enter

says it right next to Ip address.

wtf?

It means that your other computer is trying to connect or send data to that computer. As to why its trying to do this I have no idea.

You could configure zone alarm to allow it, but How is your network setup?

What is your router model?
