    I am having some issues with attaching my T-mobile G1 to my home network. On a normal day, this is what my router is attached to:


    When I attach my T-mobile G1 phone to the network, the phone is given as the IP address. But when I look at the attached devices list, there are all kinds of showing up. They all have one thing in common. They all share my phone's MAC address. Here is a screen shot of attached devices after my phone connects to the network:


    I do a whois on the IP addresses and it comes back to the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense. The green text below is the whois return:

    Does anyone know why this is doing this? How can I correct this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
