EA6500 DHCP Map showing LAN interfaces

Why does the DHCP table show devices interfaced as LAN when nothing on the network is wired.

Even after refreshing the list the interfaces are not correct.

For example I am showing one of our Blackberry's connected LAN.

I thing the device list feature combined the the DHCP table has some issues. It does not work right.

Comment?

That's exactly what it is. When the device is inactive/standby, it shows as LAN.

It'd be nice to get technical answer from an expert though!

This has long been a bug with Linksys firmware across various models. Even my old WRT54G had this bug. Basically, it doesn't seem to correctly identify which interface devices are using fairly often (WiFi vs LAN).

I suspect that the dhcp server considers the WiFi and wired interfaces to be part of the same LAN and doesn't really care which type of LAN interface a client is connected to. I have encountered this in other vendor's routers also.
