  • We have Dell Opiplex 7010's and we are noticing that these pc's are being bounced off our switches, when we look further we see this Dell ESG Pcba Test and would like to know if this has anything to do with the switches bouncing them offline as showing duplicate mac address's'

  • Hi. I have the same thing showing as an active device on my network. I show as an Ethernet connection.

  • This is the MAC address for the IDRAC or management port.

  • If this is something I have not set up myself I would have to guess it could be the way my machine was hacked.  

      I first discovered this using something different than what I am using now. My AV shows it in my network as Generic device and adapter is made by Canon.  I know it is the same because MAC is the same.

  • I have a Dell XPS8700 operating on Windows 8.1. I'm using WiFi Guard to see what's using my internet. Recently found unknown item Dell PCBA Test, "192.168.0.6 B8-CA-3A-B7-BF-1A 0 ms Tom Dell PCBA Test" This appears to be originating for my computer. I'm having no problems with the internet Can you give me more information
  • I have only found out that it is some sort of server hub that would normally be used by an Admin on an Enterprise machine. I am pretty sure that it has something to do with a "RAT" that is part of some bigger hack. I have had issues for almost 3 years with something no one or no virus scanner seems to see.

    This article (addrs. below)seems to be a step in the right direction though. Maybe not your issue but it is dead on with my problems. let me know if you find out more. Thanks for letting me know.
