WLAN access rejected: incorrect security

I see this constantly in my log file in my DumaOS dashboard (see attached log file).

 

"[WLAN access rejected: incorrect security] from MAC address c0:c1:c0:04:5f:40, Monday, June 10, 2019"

 

The MAC address points to something Cisco/Linksys related, though I cannot think of any devices that I own that are Cisco or Linksys. I see the access rejection in the logs constantly throughout the day. 

 

Anyone have any idea what this might be or if this is common to appear in the logs?

 

Thanks!

Any wireless device somebody has tried to associate to the router wireless SSID - either with a wrong password/passphrase/WPA-key, or going mad otherwise - somewhere in the wireless reach.

The Cisco or Linksys name probably just refers to the wireless hardware in whatever device is trying to connect.
