I have a question, 

 

Please excuse me for addressing a question which has since been closed. It's of my opinion that your customers deserve real closure when asking a valid question, which for reasons unknown, has not been done and has still been left unanswered - "What is the device on my Cisco Gateway 10.0.0.254 mac 00:05:04:03:02:01?"

This was asked on your forum by customers, which I too had anticipated some kind of answer to a fairly common question. When finding this question had been asked numerous times and gone basically unanswered, I felt a strong need , to ask this forum once again for a answer to one real good (un)answered question. So please, one last time ... "What is the device on my Cisco Gateway 10.0.0.254 mac 00:05:04:03:02:01?" , 'WHY' would then be my next question and then perhaps a 'WHO' could prove useful.

It's the IP address and the MAC / hardware address of the gateway's built in ASA hardware firewall. It's nothing to be concerned about. Use the forum search feature and search for "Naray" to see some info.

Thank you for the reply. I knew, from what I had read, it may of been related to Comcasts router/modem. What I do not understand is why this ip address shows up only occasionally. I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to computers but shouldnt this ip be seen at all times if it's always connected?

 

I will not drag this out any further and I thank you again for the reply.
