Ghost DHCP client

Unread post by depablo » Tue Aug 08, 2017 9:49 pm

Hi,

I am user of RT1900AC.

On my DHCP client list I see unknown record. There is host with MAC starting with 10:AE:60... (I couldn't find any manufacturer using that type of MAC) and with assigned IP 192.168.1.78. This host doesn't have host name.

What's strange I don't see this host on Traffic control tab. This IP is not pingable. I tried to scan it with nmap but without success.

Do you have any idea what device it might be?

Thanks,
Pawel

Could be anything. TV set top box, game console ??
Often mobile telephones a Host name is not set.
Could be a "stranger" to, "hitch-hiking" anonymously on your internet connection as he/she have your WiFi password.
RT1900ac / DS213j / DS415+ / DS218+ (at different locations).

Can it be the Download Station or other router's service?

No, a client within your LAN with a MAC starting with 10:AE:60... is a device, not a service from outside.

It was just my wife's Kindle.
