IP address 192.168.2.255 found

The Advaced Network Scanner found the address 192.168.2.255. How is it possible?

The hostname seems to be "HP281ED8" = HP OfficeJet Pro 8610. MAC Address B4:2E:99:94:2E:6D is the PC issuing the scan. If I try to ping to this entry, sometimes  (from a WiFi connected device) "Request timed out", sometimes (from a UTP connected device) ping leads to some other IP, typically the Chromecast (on Ethernet), Arrayent (Salus WiFi thermostat)  or Roomba (WiFi vacuum cleaner).

What are the network settings?  If the network mask is set to 255.255.255.0, then this is not a valid IP address.  But if the network mask is set to something like 255.255.254.0, then 192.168.2.255 *is* a valid IP address.

Double-check the settings on the DHCP server, as maybe they are different than you expect.

HTH,
