Not sure what's going on, or even if it is a problem. I have XP pro desktop. Hoping someone can educate me!

Brief description (ok, not so brief):
-lost internet connection
-unplugged router
-plugged in router
-connection comes up but instead of {network name} it comes up as {network name 2} and makes it public network
-shut down desktop
-unplugged everything (router and modem)
-plugged everything back in
-started desktop
-internet connection working with proper network name
-right-click network in notification area and select 'status'
-select 'properties'
-select 'settings'
-get error message stating 'The port number is already used by another entry. Please enter unique port number'
-click 'ok' to error message and 'service settings' window pops up with with service description of ooVoo TCP with port 443
-click 'cancel', click 'ok', click 'cancel and advanced settings window comes up
-window lists services running on my network that internet users can access
a lot of ooVoo with different ports
a lot of Teredo
Windows Media Format SDK (waol.exe)

Can someone explain what I am looking at and if it is a problem. I have no idea what any of this means!


edit: I thought I was posting this in the Network forum. May have to be moved
