Copycat Wifi Signals?

Hi, recently I've been having WIFI connection problem on my phone(connection will go on and off) and when I used a WIFI analyser I found that there were 2 hidden WIFI connection with the same MAC ADDRESS as my router with one having even having the same IP ADDRESS and they were running on the same channel as my router.

I then decided to change the channel of my router and shockingly the hidden WIFI signals also changed channels to the same channel as mine.

I'm starting to believe that this is an attack,what do you think?

    Turn off your router and see if the copycat is still there.  Sometimes those WIFI Analyzers will give a Ghost Reflection.

    are you sure it's not just the Guest Wifi (which i'm guessing you disabled), and possibly the 5Ghz feed?

    try powering off your router and check again...
