Netgear router logs show admin config panel login from FingBox
I have a Netgear D7000 router and a FingBox V2. I was having some issues configuring my DHCP server to advertise my pihole as the default DNS server to connected devices, and I disconnected the power to the FingBox to make sure it wasn't interfering with the process.
I left it off for about an hour while I worked on the issue. About 15 mins after I turned it back on I logged into the admin panel of my netgear router and viewed the log file. The most recent entry was 'admin access from 10.1.1.101' which was the imac i was using. Further down there was an entry that said 'admin access from 10.1.1.11' from 15 mins prior, and just before that 'DHCP request from xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, assigned '10.1.1.11'.
That IP address is the static IP of my fingbox, and the 'admin access' entry was just after I turned the fingbox back on. Is it unusual that my fingbox is logging into my router's admin panel or is this expected behaviour?
i might also mention, the log file distinguishes between successful and failed login attempts, the fingbox was successful.
Here's an example of the log entries..
