It looks as if it is a wireless access point by Linksys.

Turn your gateway off then from a device on the same subnet .... telnet to it, ping it, nbtstat -A 192.168.1.1, http://192.168.1.1 it... to see what it is then look in your switch tables for the mac address reported in your arp tables (ARP -A) and nuke it!

Altenative of course if send an email around "The person who has just plugged unauthorised equipment into the LAN has 5 minutes to remove it or be fired!"... if only!

Get the mac address, look in your switch tables for that mac.

Someone plugged in a router to share their connection with someone else in their office.  Thanks so much.
