Why is Fing reporting Rogue Access Points for Netgear Orbi everyday at 10:08 AM local?

For the last month or so, Fing reports 5 Rogue Access Points on my network every day at 10:08 AM local. The reported MAC addresses are NOT on the network when I search sometime later. All 5, however, are valid Netgear Orbi access points with the reported MAC addresses "corrupted" in the first two digits - adding 6 to the valid digits. 38:94:ED:xx:xx:xx becomes 3E:94:ED:xx:xx:xx and 8C:3B:AD:xx:xx:xx becomes 92:3B:AD:xx:xx:xx. Neither 3E:94:ED nor 92:3B:AD are valid vendors.

    Hey @Rich602, qualifying question, is this being reported via Fingbox / Fing App or Fing Desktop?

    Have you tried looking at the digital fence at that time?  Maybe it could add some insight into what you’re seeing?  Also wondering if the Orbi’s are doing some backhaul discovery or network path discovery at that time that could be confusing the Fingbox…
