Hello. I have this router and it has only 3 cables connected:
Power cable
WAN (ISP ethernet cable)
LAN1 cable which comes into my PC

Router's WiFi is disabled.

In network tab I see some weird device connects and disconnect every minute.

And my log flooded with this weird messages:

For me it seems like someone from that IP tryies to enter my router web interface.

I execute "ipconfig /all command" and don't see the device with c4:a8:1d:41:ea:ef MAC address at all.

I fill strange about it. Maybe I caught some smart virus or somethink like that? Routers can be hacked, that's no news.

    According to it's MAC address that's D-Link device. Does that help?

    Hm, I don't have any D-Link devices in my home.
  • MijzelfMijzelf Posts: 974  Heroic Warrior Member
    And you have only one cable from your PC to LAN1, and one cable from upstream in WAN, and that's all?
    That logmessage is repeating each 3/4 seconds. Does that continue if you disconnect WAN?

    That's totally right.

    Today I made more experiments and found in router's connections tab that same IP. It looks like the router connects to it on his own, so it's not coming from my PC.

    Later I tried to unplug WAN cable and this weird messages in log stopped. Once I plugged WAN again it appeared again.

    Then I enabled WiFi, unplugged LAN1 cable (my PC) and connected to router from laptop via WiFi. That weird messages were still coming.

    So... looks like this comes from my ISP provider and there is nothing to worry about?

    Indeed. I think your ISP doesn't isolate the clients on that network segment, and that someone connected a D-Link router to his internet connection on the same segment, which is trying to get a WAN IP address by DHCP, while your ISP uses PPPoE. That request somehow leaks into your LAN, and is answered, but the answer doesn't 'leak out' back, and so that router keeps trying.
