    I have a THOMSON TG585 v7 DSL router and when I browsed devices connected i found 2 unknown devices and apart from my 2 pcs, a switch and a media player I have nothing else wired and the wireless option is disabled.

    Obvious question #1: do you learn anything by clicking on the unknown devices?

    Obvious question #2: do the unknown devices correspond to the switch and media player (check the MAC addresses)?

    I don't even know if switch does have a MAC Address, but if it does I assume it would be on the back or bottom of it.

    I don't have any other ideas, guesses or questions.
