I reinstalled Windows but it didn't help (with new partition).
If I found a solution, then I post it here.

appears to have come from a Microsoft Windows Messenger Update. It
showed up originally about 04/16/04.
How to verify:
1. Launch Windows Messenger
2. Get online to you account and leave it active
3. Now got to Windows "START" button
4. Proceed to "Network Connections"
5. Right Click on LAN Connection Linux IGD and choose properties
6. There is one button in the lower right "Settings"
7. This opens "Advanced Settings"
8. You will see your IP address followed by a UDP and TCP port
9. Remove the checks from the boxes, save and restart.
10. Low and behold the "Local Area Connection on Linux IGD" is gone
with no problems.
This handled it on my system. PS:Qwest, Actiontec, my ISP had no clue.

Note: we still haven't audio/video in MSN Messenger working, but we are very close. Input is welcome! Use the E-mail link (remove the spam words) or the webmaster form!
Some knowlegde about networking and Linux is required. We used WindowsXP and MSN Messenger beta-5, build 527, but it should also work with other Messenger versions. We're not sure if UPnP will work with other Windows versions (probably not, maybe there is an UPnP update available).

remove the check from Internet Gateway found under the Windows Components
Network Services entry
( Click on Add Remove Programs in your control panel
Clickon Windows Components (Add or Remove)
Click on the details button by the Network Services
Remove check by Internet Gateway )
Your Linux LAn will be gone for good. This is something that is affected by Windows update and does involve Messenger software. It can and does mess
up broadband connectiivty.

Having found it previously i used another method of killing it. Then i recently noticed it had returned on both of my computers - one needed to be reinstalled anyway so i went ahead and did it. No linux on IGD - days later no linux on IGD. How and why does this thing appear.
I do like many people have an actiontec router.

Just unplug the network cable, the connection will go off.
