I saw my PC's network name in the list of peers! How is this possible?

I just came in and turned on the monitor to look at my torrents, and I saw the name my computer is registered as on my wireless network, as one of the peers downloading a torrent! It was only there long enough for me to write down the IP address, which is NOT mine, and then it disappeared. I entered that IP in the ipfilter.dat and ran it so it won't show up again. But in the Windows resource monitor, under Network, that same IP is still listed as being connected, randomly.

I've been torrenting for most of this year, so I'm mostly familiar with how uTorrent works, and I've never seen it happen before.

How on earth is this possible? Have I been hacked? Any ideas?
