    Out of nowhere, I am now seeing a section called "All" in the Finder sidebar, and I am seeing "64.0.0.0.ptr.us.xo.net" in addtion to "Dell", which is my own Windows PC that I am expecting to see. Does anyone know what this 64.0.0.0 thing is ??

    Looks like your ISP. Xo Communications. Very strange though.

    My ISP is Cablevision (Optimum) in NJ.

    I should add that it is showing up in Finder as a "Neighborhood"

    What do you base this on? I'm not saying its impossible, but its doubtful. I have changed my wi-fi password as a precaution, but I think this is something else.

    Just for the heck of it I tracked 64.0.0.0 and it lead me to here:

    It could maybe be the external IP of your router being shown on the internal LAN. Do you have any file shares on your router?

    No, I don't do anything with my router other than basic wireless security.

    I have not seen the address since I changed the wireless password.
