    I noticed that my ac87u with merlin fw shows up a unknown client it does have same mac as the router itself. Factory reset doesn't change anything.

    This won't show up if I run stock fw

    I don't have currently installed any amtm plugins.

    Is there something wrong with my router, and could that be removed somehow?

    Attaching some pictures here if they can help.

    This is normal. The RT-AC87U really runs two separate firmware, with two separate CPUs. What you are seeing there is the Quantenna system running within your router.
