Ok, thanks y'all for listening.

I am running DD-WRT on my wireless router and there is this mysterious MAC address that has many connections when our download bandwidth usage goes up. I don't know where to start on this, but so far, this past fall, our router IP and password have mysteriously changed.

The MAC address appears to be connected through LAN

Can someone please help me on this?

I figured out the MAC address issue, but we are still having an issue where some computers will have their connections jump up to 300-400 and our bandwidth shoots up, lagging everything else.

What OS and anti virus programs are you running?

Have you scanned all the PC's with your anti virus?

All of my roommates are running windows 7.

I'm running Symantec endpoint protection.
