    Hi @Cheree_1
    Can you check under router settings if the other MAC address is of the different frequency. Every router has multiple network interface cards which is the reason, routers are able to provide multiple frequencies(2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz). These are different access points that have their own MAC address(BSSID).
