Doing a system check it showed 3 devices not working properly. One of these was Roku but as far as I know I do not have any devices that use this service. I have one Samsung smart tv, two Nowtv boxes, two TT tv boxes and two soundbars. All except the tv showing as working correctly, this is connected by wifi. Apart from these I have various google play music and radio apps.
How can I identify what is registered as the Roku device.

Normally, you need to look at the MAC address. Please can you include screenshot from the router?
Sorry Keith can find out list of connected devices by ISP address but cannot find any instructions on the forum for finding mac addresses.
Are the ISP addresses any help and is it safe to post these.
Disconnected two devices as last night and I system check today only shows 7 device as at 12pm last night. Router showed 9 without the 2 disconnected ones. Of the 4 without names and only showing ip address I can identify 2 as soundbars but cannot assess the other two ISP's.
I am only aware of 10 devices I own.
Took screen shots of both system and router pages but they saved as photos which I cannot attach here.
Funny things happening, just logged into router again and now showing 10 devices which is the number I have. No mention of a Roku device. Still two devices with only ISP numbers which I don't know what they refer to.
Would still like to know how to find mac addresses if you don't mind, may help others as well.
And another FWIW - mine occasionally acted as an identifable AP and put out an SSID with Roku in the name (but that never caused any issues), and you can't successfully link to it. Much in the same way as FireSticks do.
Check your local wifi signals and you may see the SSID sometimes.
You can attach photos, you use the Insert Photos icon on the editor's toolbar (camera icon). Then I can tell you how to find the MAC addresses.
In future, please can you ensure that any images are set to "Large", as yours are all far too small. Although I can enlarge them, the text goes out of focus.
OK, moving on from that, once logged into the router, go to:-
Dashboard > Manage my devices > Manage advanced settings
The connected devices are shown in the red boxes below. Click on the device name to manage it & view the MAC addresses. Then compare these to the MAC addresses of all of your devices. Hopefully, this might help you identify the rogue device.
Thanks got there in the end. Disconnected everything and found that the Now boxes also seem to show as Roku if not working well on wifi. If working ok they show as Now only.
Named all attached devices with friendly names whilst at it.
