Constant 0x0800 traffic between router and computer

I've only just recently started using Wireshark and haven't done any configuration beyond installation. Whenever I start a packet capture there is a constant stream of roughly 10 - 1000 packets per second of 0x0800 protocol traffic between my computer and the router. Even with no windows open and no other programs running this traffic is consistently being exchanged. Whenever I attempt to generate traffic the volume of these packets simply increases with no other addresses or protocols appearing.

I've tried reinstalling Wireshark but this hasn't changed anything.
