OK, so the thought is that it's not a fake AP? Then what the heck is it?

Cisco has an office here in Ohio (United States). When I pass it on the
highway with KisMac open ... KisMac cripples under the load of access points
found. They do *not* exist. As long as you remain within a square mile of
the Access Point, you will find endless numbers of imaginary access points.
They can only be fake.

Cisco makes access points so maybe this is the lab where they send returned units for testing. Are all the BSSIDs in the ranges assigned to Cisco?

If you have a high gain directional antenna you could locate exactly where each access point is located.
