Under status and LAN it shows all DHCP Clients on the network.

Working with a Linksys EA6500

Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (05/27/14) giga - build 24160
Kernel Version Linux 3.10.40 #2487 Tue May 27 11:58:25 CEST 2014 mips

When you click on a mac address under that DHCP Clients tab it pops out a second window with info such as:

Here are the results of your search through the public section of the IEEE Standards MA-L database report for F0-25-B7:

F0-25-B7 (hex)
F025B7 (base 16)

Along with this you get the company data associated. That said I have something else showing as well. Another "Companys" information is showing up just below and between this message...

Your attention is called to the fact that the firms and numbers listed may not always be obvious in product implementation. Some manufacturers subcontract component manufacture and others include registered firms' MA-L in their products.

Can someone help me understand this information a bit better? This is a bit more urgent in nature so if you can help I'd really be appreciative.

Thanks!

This isn't all devices....but one specific device. I just wanted to make that clear.


Other devices show very different info and none are throwing flags of WTF is going on.

It looks up in a database which manufacturer that series og MAC addresses is assigned to. The first 3 16 bit values identifies the manufacturer.

It should be F0:25:B7 with ":", not "-".
