If you have a gateway set, the packets are sent to the gateway to route them.

If you don't, the router could be proxy-arping the requests.

Proxy ARP was the first thing that came to my mind too

I've never heard of this before. I looked online and it looks like my host would have to have no gateway but it does. Can you explain how this would work in my network? If you don't mind

You said MAC of 192.168.255.1 is your router? So what is the MAC of 192.168.255.2? What kind of packets (ports)?

Actually the address of my router is 192.168.254.254 on my LAN. I only know 192.168.255.1 is my router too because the Mac address is only off by one chacter at the end.
