    Your attachments show 2 separate networks that are on the same channel. One is not broadcasting an SSID.
    The networks are not on the same router because the mac addresses are different.

    Sorry, I misread the mac addresses.

    One entry does not broadcast an SSID while the other one does.
    There is a very good possibility that one of the networks is a guest network.
    Guest networks do not allow LAN access. They are often enabled by default on many routers.
    You'll need to check your router configuration to determine if this is the case.

    I have set my router to hide SSID. I doublechecked if guest network is set off. To be honest, I am a bit paranoic and I switched every unnecessary service off (5GHz network too - so far).
    Yesterday I tested this thing again and I unhided SSID. Immediately inSSIDer showed only one network. When I hide SSID again network was doubled - one named (here I was connected) and second unnamed.

    Could you test it and hide your SSID if behavior inSSIder is same with other router?
    Is there some logic explanation why hided network is doubled?

    I'm traveling right now so I can't do any testing.
    I'll alert Joel about this issue.
