As in the subject, who does this IP belong to and why are they connected to my router?
I have eliminated all possibility of it being a connection in the house.
they have 1 open UDP session, and ping <20ms.

To elaborate: you need that DNS server. As you might know, when you type in a URL (like www.google.com) it's DNS servers that are responsible for resolving that name to the address of a specific system somewhere on the planet that has the content you're looking for.
There's a whole hierarchy of DNS servers working to shuffle you round the web. 188.8.131.52 is one of the ones that talks to 'you' directly.
It doesn't have to be there, but if it wasn't, you'd have to get real good at memorising IP addresses to get anything online

Interestingly my firewall log reports.......
Fri 09 Aug 18:34 184.108.40.206 54171 11 TCP- or UDP-based Port Scan
Why would the virgin media DNS server be port scanning me????????

Is it always 220.127.116.11 that gets listed even if you set to use 18.104.22.168 only?
