    i have a home network, 3 computers wired to the wireless router and one laptop that connects to that router. i was checking the logs of my router today and i noticed that there were 2 different mac addresses registering with my router, one of them was my laptop, and i wasnt familiar with the other one. but both my laptop and the other unfamiliar address register with the router at the exact same time. anyone know what this is about? here is what my log says:

    that's strange...... the 00-12-F0 one is an intel address and the 00-06-25 one is a linksys address.

    your wireless card from linksys?

    do an "ipconfig /all" and see if the other card shows up as your wired ethernet card
