Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You state you have a DHCP MAC address, how do you know that? If you are running a DHCP server on your network this may be the culprit. Are you sure that you don’t have a rouge DHCP server on the network? Also there are sniffer tools/programs available. Based on the information you have provided this is the best information I can provide.  Any network administrator can find a rouge router or DHCP server on their network. One last question is this a WIFI setup?

    Your setup is not very clear. How can your network administrator not find a router on his network? Can you bring someone else in who can help? More information to us would be beneficial.

    Well I have have seen this a lot lately.  Probably cause is a Iphone or Adroid hot spot.  Very hard to find.  Possible cause is the router you are hitting is the main router, but for some odd reason the port has been configured wrong.  I have also seen where a wireless router was installed that did not get configured as a bridge.
