    I have Mikrotik router with hotspot that it has the fallowing setting

    WAN : 192.168.0.50 ( connected to LAN of ADSL modem with IP 192.168.0.1)
    LAN: 192.168.1.1 ( hotspot ip)


    I have client that has AP in client bridge mode. AP IP is 192.1.1.188

    and has home router with WAN IP : 192.168.1.189 and Lan network 192.168.10.1/24.


    I notice that MAC address of the client's AP is taking two IPs :192.168.1.189 (normal) and 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (weird why it is taking the hotspot or the modem ip ; the hotspot change this ip to an ip in the range 192.168.1.0/24)

    the IP 192.168.1.189 has sign AD but IP 192.168.1.1 has sign D.

    Note : I notice that Mac address in host is not just IP 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 but it sometimes change fast with random Ips)
