Unknown router appears in my network

An unidentified router recently appeared on my network. I have never had this happen before. Screenshot attached. The Linksys E4200 is not mine.

It sees the router because it's on the same subnet you are using. It probably belongs to a neighbor. Nothing to worry about.

There are many neighbor networks that show up on the wireless network list, however this is the first time I have ever seen a router on MY secured network. Weird.

Your router sees it. It's not on your network.
