I was checking my network activity from Resource Monitor and noticed chrome sending data to 239.255.255.250. Looked it up and it seems to be an address associated with Plug & Play devices. What I would like to know find out, is if this is normal. I can't remember if it did it before, but do I need this? What is it actually trying to do? Thanks :)

I did a google. I got several entries like that one, about svchost. However none about google making the connections. I assume its to the plug and play service. Would it have something to do with my PC having only came out of sleep mode?
