    It's the same device. That is just the name that Windows assigned to it at random before it was changed to something more meaningful.
    Yep, it would be the computer name that was given during Windows Setup.

    +1 to they should let you name your device "what you want" during setup. And not have to go and change it afterward. It's better than it was though. In the past I would have the old name and the new name listed as two separate devices. Now, eventually, the name just changes on its own in your list of devices. After what seems like a random delay? I hardly ever go to that web page, but when I do I'm always deleting junk leftovers from the list.
