[4.5-R]Why I Am I Seeing This Traffic ?

Folks: Just seeking info here, as I don't believe anything is wrong.
I use fixed wireless for Internet access. In the last couple of days,
I've been seeing DHCPDISCOVER msgs coming into my gateway's log. Obviously,
some nearby Wi-Fi user is trying to get onto the 'net and their system
doesn't have an IP.
What I don't understand is that my ISP uses WEP (and I obviously use
the WEP key on my router), so shouldn't that filter out this mystery
node's traffic ?
As I say, this isn't a problem, bec in addition to IPFW rules to
stop him, my DHCP daemon doesn't service that iface. So eventually,
this knucklehead will go away. I'm simply curious. Later....Jet
