Sky Wireless Connector


[link to this post]
 
Just curious about what is happening.

My router logs show repeated " [WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address " this being my Sky Wireless Connector. The device is connected to my network and working as it should. This happens during the night every night. Is it something I should be worried about?

You might be able to look up the MAC address to see sort of device it comes from and that my help. Are you in range of anyone else's wireless network?

Yes - the point is it is my own Sky Wireless Connector which the router "Attached Devices" shows as being connected (same MAC address in both the logs and the attached devices). My Sky box is working and the network settings page on there show that it is connected to my network. The Sky box and my router both show the same IP.

For some reason the Sky Wireless Connector is continually doing something that the router is blocking. I just wondered what is happening.

e.g. - I cleared the log earlier and this is an extract from the log as it is now:-
[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx, Monday, October 13, 2014 19:28:08
[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx, Monday, October 13, 2014 19:26:32
[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx, Monday, October 13, 2014 19:21:54
[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address xx.xx.xx.xx.xx.xx, Monday, October 13, 2014 19:20:24
