This is the private multicast address the UPnP devices respond to. Nothing to worry about.

You don't have to. This is what a device would respond to if you plugged it in.

hello m8,

ty for replying, so what u saying is that it would only appear if a device is connected ? in my case i am not connecting anything to the pc to have this. This appears randomly at times and if i delete the arp cache and reboot the router, it goes away until it comes again. I don't know whats getting it there but i have started only noticing this arp address and mac id for the past month, none before it.

I'm saying that for whatever reason your noticing it, there's nothing wrong with it and nothing is trying to get into your computer.
