Hi just check my router settimgs to see what devices are connected to the network and it lists about 25 devices of which most are repeated such as 3 Xbox's 3 TV's 3 google mini's and so on.

Why is this happening?

Some devices are listed as the correct device but some also have a mix of  numbers and letters and then a picture of a ? 

Can i change the names of the listed devices so i know what they are?

Thanks admin.png

Hi

 

The router will list previously connected devices and you can usually give a device a more friendly name by editing the details.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

The numbers etc are usually the mac address of the device.

 

I would list only the active devices and change the names of the ones you are familiar with.  Alternatively, I usually reserve an IP for each device I use a lot so I can identify them.

 

Thanks
