If you look at your lan with ntop and you have windows machines hanging
around,
you will see a lot of UDP traffic with 239.255.255.250. Just google that IP
and
you will get a feel for why you see that traffic. Evidently M$ makes a lot of
use of it.

Multicast Membership protocol address... Used by mostly Multicast related.

IPTV for instance (like I got recently from Deutsche Telekom ;)

Ciao, Marcus
