169.254.223.188 ???

The last few days I have an IP address that I don't recognise, 169,254,223,188 in the list of devices. Any idea what this is?

It's one of default IP address (in 169.254.X.X) chosen by the network card when DHCP is down.
(see more here or ask google about APIPA - Automatic Private IP Addressing ).

You may repair your DHCP server / network or set a static IP.
