ause
Universal Plug and Play is detecting another
computer on the network with Internet Connection
Sharing enabled. The Universal Plug and Play
feature allows Windows to automatically detect
certain types of devices across the network. Ifa computer is mistakenly configured to use
Internet Connection Sharing, other computers
on the network may detect it as a Residential
Gateway Device or a 1394 connection through
Universal Plug and Play.

Solution

To stop your computer from detecting 1394
connections or Residential Gateway Devices, you
can disable Universal Plug and Play.
