      I have a friend visiting. McAfee on his tablet keeps popping up a warning about my router,  20:2b:c1:75:a1:60 a BT home hub 3. The hub is secured with WPA & WPA2,  and has a strong password.

       

      I'm running McAfee on 3 windows 7 machines,  2 Android tablets (Android 4.4.2 and Android 5) ,  and an android phone (4.4.4),. None of them have ever given such a warning.

       

      All the Android machines are using McAfee security v4.4.0.467.

       

      Wifi analyzer app shows that I connect to

      In the app on my tablet,  the mac address he gets warned about is shown as a LAN neighbor.

       

      What does it all mean? Is there a problem? How can I fix it?   Even if he chooses to remain connected with the box ticked to remember,  the warning regularly pops up. If he disconnects,  he cannot browse the net.
