You're getting 192.168.1.52. What are you talking about? Either there is
a machine on your network that has that LAN IP address or there is not a
machine on your LAN that has that IP that you know about.

Well, if this is a wireless network that you have which I'll assume .200
access point means WAP, then why not if you have not secured the wireless
Anyone can obtain a DHCP or static IP from you wireless network and use
your network if you don't take measures to prevent the access. In
addition to that since the 192.168.1.52 is on the same IP part of
192.168.1, he or she may have been all over your LAN machines that use
the 192.168.1 if those machines are not protected too.
If there is a router in play and it has wireless MAC filtering, you may
want to start using that feature.
