Windows 7: Unknown Router in Network Infrastructure

Unknown Router in Network Infrastructure

I got 3 computers (2 desktops, 1 laptop) setup in a network, also connected through Homegroup.

I'm using a D-Link WBR-1310 this router shows up on all of my computers, however on the laptop it shows up alongside another router, a WGR614v10 which I googled, turns out it's a netgear router. I don't have a Netgear router, why is it there? Is it a neighbours' router? If it's not part of my network, why does it show up? On the same channel maybe?

I don't recognize the mac address.

After a while it goes away, but if I refresh the window the Netgear router appears again.

It's just a Windows bug where one of the neighbors WiFi routers shows up in the network map, happens all the time and means nothing really.
