Smart phone called **bleep**-licker. Who is connecting?

I've recently had BT Fibre installed. I was looking at the network connections yesterday and found a greyed out entry (so disconnected) for a smart phone which, interestingly was called **bleep**-licker! (I find the posting police put **bleeps** on my post, so think cats and ladies bits 🙂 )I have two teen daughters and so was a bit alarmed. Both their phones are identifiable in the connections , so it is not them.  I though it had to be one of my daughters friends, who arrives and connects to our wifi most mornings - the timings coincided . So I had a word with her Dad and he checked her iPhone but that is called soandso's iPhone, so not herapparently.  I took a look in the event log and this is what showed for this morning, when she was also around:

08:15:26, 06 Jun.

wl1.1:Device <BC:FF:EB:D4:7D:FC> was disconnected on SSID (Device/WiFi/SSIDs/SSID[WL_REDSIDE_O1_2G])

08:14:59, 06 Jun.

wl1:IGMP join received for group 224.0.1.60 on interface wl1

08:13:13, 06 Jun.

BR_LAN:The DHCP options that are offered by the device (id:34): DiscoverOptions: 53,55,57,61,51,12 | DiscoverOption55: 1,121,3,6,15,119,252 | RequestOptions: 53,55,57,61,50,51,12 | RequestOption55: 1,121,3,6,15,119,252 | HostName: **bleep**-licker | VendorId:

08:13:12, 06 Jun.

BR_LAN:The DHCP options that are offered by the device (id:34): DiscoverOptions: 53,55,57,61,51,12 | DiscoverOption55: 1,121,3,6,15,119,252 | RequestOptions: 53,55,57,61,50,51,12 | RequestOption55: 1,121,3,6,15,119,252 | HostName: **bleep**-licker | VendorId:

A device with the same Mac address given in the wifi  network list as the **bleep**-licker smart phone connected at 08:12:36. 

 

Can anyone think of a way of finding out a bit more. Is the host name taken from the smart phone name? I'm fairly chilled about it all, But if it is my daughter's friend's phone and she is not aware, she might be connecting to other networks with that name, which isn't great I guess.

 

Any thoughts welcome

Simon

Re: Smart phone called **bleep**-licker. Who is connecting?

BC:FF:EB:D4:7D:FC is a Motorola Mobility MAC address, so does anyone have a Motorola device? You could deny access to that MAC address in your router and see if anyone complains.
