Devices logged on to Wi-Fi
I have a cell phone and a laptop on my Wi-Fi at home. But when I download apps that detect devices on my Wi-Fi, they invariably show 4 instead of 3 devices. They show the Arris router, my LG phone, my HP aptop, and
a mysterious fourth device with a different Mac and IP address, but is also an Arris.
The first three devices are automatically and correctly tagged by the app as “router”, “phone”, and “laptop” respectively. The fourth however is simply called ” device”..
Are these 2 Arris devices actually just a single device reported twice as a convention followed by these apps? Or is the 4th device really a distinct device I don’t know about.
