    I believe that Apple devices (laptops, phones, mp3 players etc) use Apple mac addresses. As to how Apple uses its range of mac addresses i dont know, they may use a range for certain device groups..

    I prefer to look at DHCP reservations for all devices based on MAC addresses anyway to try and help audit needs. You can then limit the scope in DHCP too ... problem solved.

    I hadn't had my first cuppa when I posted that and was a long shot but in hind sight that is correct or at least I would think so as there are other realtek / broadcom devices out there.

    You're still tackling the wrong problem. I'd be much less relaxed about them being connected in the first place if it was me...

    (why are you still using WEP?)
