Pace 5268ac Gateway has an two IP addresses?

Since having a 2Wire DSL modem to the latest offering from AT&T the Pace 5268ac, have all been assigned an IP of 192.168.1.254 by default.  Recently though, there is a new device connected to my network with the IP of 192.168.1.87.  Using Fing, a network scanner on my iPad, shows the name and manufacturer as 5268ac by AirTies.  What makes its more interesting is a neighbor of mine has the same device listed on their network of connected devices too.  Doing a web search turns up nothing to help in the matter.  I do see AT&T offering WiFi extenders for use with the Pace 5268ac modem by AirTies, that neither my neighbor and I currently own.  Why is this device showing up on my network and why isn’t AT&T being transparent about what or why this is on my network

Hi @heIIiant1,

 

That is interesting. When you login to  your gateway at http://192.168.1.254, do you see this connection in the device list? If not, my thoughts are that our gateway keeps a connection available for the AirTies, which is a WiFi extender we provide.

I have the same gateway and I use a program call  network analyzer which shows a 5268ac AirTies device active. This device does not appear when you login to the gateway’s configuration though. This program also indicates UPnP service is enabled on this device.  It’s my understanding AT&T does not allow UPnP because of security issues. If this program is correct why is UPnP enabled?

This is EXACTLY what I'm finding.  We've had this 5268ac long enough, and I watch for items such as this to also add that this "AirTies" that is running on two seperate ip's HAS NOT BEEN PRESENT before this!!!

Odd, found this with google search, 2 others in here with same "SERIOUS" problem as mine but conversation just withered away after the previous 2 posts........ ????!!!!

 

The only logical reasoning would be an AirTies repeater has been placed on my network to extend the wi-fi's reach without my permission.... somehow.  Same as with the other two gentleman.  Why no further discussion?  Something else that answers this scenario?

Any further information, please post.

That Airties IP you are seeing was added in the latest firmware update to the 599, 5268ac, and the BGW210 routers so that IF you add an Airties extender, the wifi on the gateway will become one of the mesh nodes.

Adding port configuration, or any software addition would still not present a device that is pulling ip's.  I can actually ping these.  BUT, guess this will have to do as an explanation for now.....
