Meraki MX vap: 0 message

I'm in the process of modifying our network, and I noticed that I'm getting this in the event log.  I know vlan: 3 is for VLAN 3, which is correct, but what does vap: 0 mean?  Apparently, it's for wireless, but I have a MX68, and it doesn't have WiFi.  Just wondering what this means, and how can I fix it?

 

"vap: 0, vlan: 3"

 

I think I know the answer.  Right now, we have everything on VLAN 1 on our Cisco router.  But, I have a Meraki test network in my office which is using VLANs (2,3, and 4), so I guess my laptop is connecting to our existing WiFi network, which is on VLAN 1, and the Meraki is confused because on the Meraki, there's no VLAN 1?

 

Am I right?

It's normal. All my DHCP leases appear like that in the event log too. It just tells you that the MX has handed out IP address x to client y.

Is there anything else on that log entry? Seems incomplete...

Okay, so it's a log line for a dhcp offer on vlan 4. That MAC address, do you recognize it? How is that device connected?

I made up that MAC address. So how can I fix the message?  Is it normal?
