Can someone use my WiFi via my phone?

    In my router log I've seen entries like this:

    11.11.10 16:10:56 WLAN station registered. Name: -, IP address:, MAC address: 00:27:76:CE:15:D4, throughput: 54 MBit/s.
    11.11.10 16:10:20 WLAN station registered. Name: HTCLegend, IP address:, MAC address: 00:27:76:CE:15:D4, throughput: 54 MBit/s.

    That is my HTC Legend is connecting and then after a while "something" is connecting as well, same MAC address, but strange IP address.

    My Legend is still pretty clean but of course I've installed a dozen apps from the market. Am I paranoid, or is someone using my WiFi?

    the is your external IP address for your router. What you'd use to connect to it from outside the home. The 192 IP is your internal address for your router. How you'd access it from within the home network.

    Doesn't look like anything is wrong. They have the same MAC so i would assume they both are your phone. One is just showing up on the external side of the network and one on the internal.

    When you go out on the web, your IP isnt that 192.168 IP, that is only used inside your home network. The 10. whatever IP is your IP for your home/house/router on your Internet providers network
