2 IP address with 1 wired connection


2 IP address with 1 wired connection

I use the Nightawk AC1900 as a wireless extender at home. I use it to connect my ASUS workstation with a wired connection to the Netgear extender. I used Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. When I look at the status of the Netgear to identify wired connected device I can see two IP address assigned to my ASUS. Yet I only have 1 wired connection. I can see 2 differents MAC address as well at the status. One of the wired connection has the correct name of the ASUS computer as defined by Ubuntu. The other wired connection doesn`t have a name. I tried to identify the MAC address vendor and both come from ASUS. 


I am baffled. Is that possible to have 2 IP address and 2 MAC address with 1 wired connectionÉ
