Hard to say you need to research the IP address to see who owns it....ie what ISP. It might come back to a company.

A quick and dirty way to block a single ip is to use the route command. So let say your router ip is 192.1681.1. All traffic needs to go to that IP to get to the internet. Now lets say the IP you want to block is 101.102.103.104
I will also assume you have a unused ip like 192.168.1.250

Route add 101.102.103.104 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.250 if 1 -p

The -p makes the route stay even though reboot you can skip that if you like.

You really should block it in the firewall but if this is something that is running as admin mode it can bypass the firewall. I tried the firewall to block windows 10 from sending their telemetry data back to microsoft and they ignore the firewall settings.

Disconnect everything from your router and reboot it. If it still seems to be doing it, factory default your router. If it's still doing it, contact your isp if it is their router or get a replacement router to test with.
