Cordless phone on wireless LAN?


Hi,
I saw unexpected activity on my wireless router LED and when I logged
onto the router's administration page to check what was going on, it
showed a second device on my LAN with a MAC address and computer/device
name that I don't recognise.
Do cordless phones have a MAC address? Is there any possibility at all
that my cordless phone could be somehow connecting or interfering with
my 128-bit WEP secured wireless router?
Thanks.

Sorry, cordless phones, while using the same frequency, do not use the same signalling method over that frequency. So this would not be the phone.

nope - MAC is from an ethernet type of device - someone has found your AP, and is attempting to use it -

Got a DVR? Some of them have a network device inside and appear as a device... Matter of fact, I access mine over my wireless network...
How bout one of those tablet/laptops? Mine shows up as two devices....
