What are these things can someone help please

I'm really confused cuz at the moment I was looking at my page on BT home hub and i noticed this, a strange entry in the Ethernet section

 

Ethernet: unknown_3C:18:9F:99:17:14    3C:18:9F:99:17:14    e80::9d41:5b96:ed80:fde7

 

I dont have any such device on my home hub, is it just the wifi FON thing, if so how i do opt out of it, I dont know what my BT account details are and its confusing the hell out of me, help please thanks xD

Do you have Internet connected devices such as a  Smart TV, a Bluray Player, Powerline Adaptors or anything else connected to your home network?

No I dont have anything like that, it's worrying me as I dont want to know that my home network has been compromised.

Yes I did google it too but none of my family (only people with the passcode) usea  nokia, everyone is accounted for.

 

 

could it be the BT FON thing? the free wifi?

your home network cannot be compromised unless you have given your hub wireless key away it is most likely a BT WiFi use and that network is totally independent to yours and secure from yours

There was a thread a while back https://community.bt.com/t5/Connected-Devices-Other/Unknown-Devices/td-p/1571203/highlight/true  with something similar that appeared to show an Ethernet connected device with an IPv6 address, it was never resolved and just attributed to a screwed hub.
