computer keeps connecting to dia.static.qwest.net

My computer is connecting to 67.129.144.18 67-129-144-18.dia.static.qwest.net whenever I reboot and sometimes when I launch windows updates. Qwest is not my service provider.

Is this a security concern?

Thanks for any info.

#2 For the Organization it says Akamai Technologies.

#3 I looked up that up and I found »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akamai_Technologies

Just out of curiosity, are you working via a wireless router?

Thanks for the fast replies.

I'm familiar with akamai I've just never seen in from this ip address before. Sometimes when I look up these qwest ip's on google it says akamai in the information about the ip and other times it only tells information about qwest. I was hoping it had something to do with akamai because my past searches revealed that microsoft has a parternship with akamai.

I'm using a wired router.
