Windows 7: xbox one connection

sorry for all the posts, but my mind is working. wondering if, since the xbox one was purchased 2nd hand online, that it may have been compromised, as to why it was showing a different mac address, or the unit is somehow circumventing the router, or not showing its true detail?

**I have verified that the xbox one that is in the list, is the device when turning on and off...but the mac address differs from the one listed, as opposed to the one that showed up in the firewall log. Perhaps the one that showed up in the firewall log was a mac address, trying to get into my system, as in from outside?** If that is what that firewall log represents, then this is not the mac address I was hoping for. The IP address appears to be random, now when I ck the status. ugh**

By reading apparently the MAC address can be spoofed or changed within the console. If this is the case then the user can continually changed this address to allow function of Xbox one, rendering my efforts to lock this unit, useless. Unless there is another work around for me. I mean, my kid isn't dumb. Lol! Now, if the way to do this, is to set a fixed IP address, rather than xbox using a random address? This is a little over my head, but I need to figure this out.

Not to my knowledge, unless perhaps you are using an app on the TV.
No way to no for certain without knowing the model of tv and looking on Samsung's site for documentation of features

Are you trying to stop your child from using the xBox online completely?

If so then following the options in my first post will do this without any issue

I have a Linksys E4200. MAC addresses that are currently attached to the system are listed in DHCP section of the setup page...although I have to click DHCP reservation. This allows the router to reserve an IP address to a particular piece of equipment by MAC address.

The other MAC address in firewall could have been entered at any time by UPNP...Universal plug and play. This allows a piece of equipment, say an xbox, to open the ports it needs, without user interaction...except for entering a password, if there is one.

Also if you know the IP address of the site(s) that you wish to block you can use a specialist DNS server to block all access - secure the router and point the DNS requests to a secure server and set up Blacklists and /or Whitelists to control access.

is an api on your samsung tv. Not sure why it is "hijacked" but would not fixate on this yet. It may simply mean that the packet was routed to samsungcouldsolutions, then rerouted elsewhere once it got there. I would rather expect this.

INF 2016-12-26T07:45:30-05:00 sys Node 192.168.1.71 is down
Information that at 7:45 (I think -5 is timezone gmt -5)
a machine on your network, 192.168.1.71 is down.
Which is curious but not a deal breaker.
See if you can find out which machine is 192.168.1.71. You may need to go to the logs.
Ping it first to see if it is truly down (or if exists).

This could be an interesting exercise if you are using DHCP, which applies a new IP address to a device everytime the device is rebooted. Unless the IP is reserved. I reserve IPs for my Wireless Access Point (WAP), and my Network Access Server (NAS). Your router should always be 1.

Until its turned off, its using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to assign routing numbers on the fly. This is just fine.

Its connected to your wifi using standard 802.11n or 802.11ac because it is 5 Ghz. It has an IP address which is quoted in IPv4 standard.
fe80::... indicates that it using a tunneling protocol to create a IPv6 address which I understood to be created from the MAC address, but does not appear to be so. Unless I am wrong.
Address Allocation DHCP IP Address Type Private (NAT).......Using DHCP, as noted above
Hardware Address 4c:0b:be:73:51:b4 should be the true MAC address.
SSID ATT62rdA8D is the SID of your network. which is on.
