    Rogue Phone showing up in Network places


    this is probably old and i have found some info on it but what can be done to fix it or confirm the network scope of such a device being picked up from my local network.

    the name of the phone is Car-ea60 and the properties of it says Honda

    I have an Asus router can anything be ran from the router to find info on the phone and or on Widows 10?

    In Windows 10, and indeed in Windows 8 You get these phantom devices turning up. They are nearby Wireless devices that have been discovered. They are not connected. If you look at Properties (Right click > Properties), the IP address is always missing.

    I get several of my nearby neighbours Mobile phones, Smart TV, printers, delivery guy phone etc. popping up at random.

    You can check by looking at connected/attached devices in your Router/WAP (Wireless Access Point). That's on the Home page on my Router.
