I am trying to decode a rogue device on our Network and the MFG part of the MAC address is 00:00:ED which translates to Vendor "APRIL".

On my IP scanner it shows as a Cisco Systems device. Has anyone ever heard of APRIL as it pertains to Hardware Vendor? If so do you have any information on the Default username and password or if it goes by another name?

Thank you in advance.

If it is actually made by Cisco, you'll need to try and identify the make and model then you can use this list to get the default login. I couldn't find anything on a vendor named "April" at all. It shows up on some MAC address lists but the Vendor itself has such a generic name.

I had tried all of those combinations. I actually found the device. I was using an old off-brand cable router as a switch and didn't realize DHCP was enabled. I have removed it and all is well.
