18429
17982
17976
18381
18384

which falls into range of 17924-18429, which is not of any known allowed services listed on router.

Are the user, workstation, and domain names actually blank like that?  Is there a consistent time interval between the errors or are they pretty random?  (sorry I only have questions at the moment)

(I admit I'm googling)  

Event ID 537 and error code 0xC0000133 may be related to a time synchronization problem somewhere.  

Substatus code:  0xC0000133 supposedly means “The time at the primary domain controller is different from the time at the backup domain controller or member server by too large an amount.”
