I've seen this type of question before, so I'll be brief.

Windows is sending out a Muticast packet. If you look up the IP address that packet is sent to, you'll see the "owner" as simply the "whois" database your doing the lookup in. This is normal and simply means that the address is "reservered". (which the record indicates)

Windows sends out a few of these packets at startup. Some have to do with Universal plug and play, others are simply  looking for your network's topology. (without the actual IP address that these packets are addressed to I can't tell you more, but these packets will have adresses that look something like

RNAAPP is part of "dial up networking". It will "talk"  netbios  when you use a dial up connection. You might want to check to see if "client for Microsoft networks" is in your network properties. If it is ,and you don't need it, then remove it. Also using static DNS server addresses can stop rnaapp's "talking". NOTE that this only helps to stop outward bound netbios packets not inward bound ones.

Good luck :-)
