Why does the Cisco_AP_ATT have port 443 open for connectToCiscoAP? Can I close that port on the firewall without causing any issues?

My understanding is that AT&T somehow connects to the Cisco Wireless Access Point via HTTP/SSL over 443. I do not know why or wherefore.

No matter how many times I remove this port, AT&T adds it back onto my Access Point. I completely delete the rule and change the admin password. *You have to log in to make any changes to the firewall rules*
How does AT&T keep adding it if they don't know my password? Why would they insist that this port remain open? In order to log in and add the port rule again each time, they would have to hack my password. The event log below shows someone logging in and adding the rule again. This is not me or anyone in my house!

In regards to the Motorola Access Point for TV:
Any devices that are connected to the Access Point are seen as Wired devices; Considered to be connected directly to the Router via an ethernet cable. My router shows a 3rd device connecting to my router via the AP. I only have 2 receivers in my house. So, what is this 3rd device?
I've searched for the login to the Motorola AP, but nobody knows it. I'd like to control who is accessing my Motorola AP. I've tried every default password out there.

SomeJoe7777 is correct. Port 443 is used by the WAP remote control. Also, with the 3 devices, the WAP receives an IP address as well.
Hope this helps clarify a few things.

Thank you DavidCS,
I need to check back for these answers more often. hehe
Also, with some help, we determined that the extra device or 2nd MAC address from the 1 wireless receiver only shows up when connecting via wireless. If I plug that receiver in directly to the Modem/Router, it no longer uses that 2nd device. This only occurs when using the Motorola AP and wireless option. Are you saying that the 2nd MAC is the Wireless Access Point? I have already accounted for the Motorola VAP 2500. I know it's MAC address and the MAC address of the LAN card on my receiver. That one is constant whether I'm using wired or wireless.
Can you explain this a little further?
