My router shows these 4 connections in the Internet Sessions page. If I run CurrPorts or Netstat -an they show no connections and absolutely nothing using those ports. I Checked every program running with Sysinternals Process Explorer and there are no foreign programs or files running and none with a established connection. How can't I find out whats connecting to these IP's?

reply to Sindows 7 The most likely explanation is the program that established the connection has closed and is no longer using the port and the router is either not stateful or the proper TCP closing handshake did not occur so the router does not know the connection is no longer established.
