Windows 10: Unknown phone appears on Desktop network Window but not laptop window

    Unknown phone appears on Desktop network Window but not laptop window


    I run a network of all Win 10 Pro 64 systems, all connected wirelessly to a router, which is then connected to Comcast internet via a cable modem.

    Just now, this unknown phone "shamu" appeared in the "phones" part of the network window on my desktop. I have my laptop sitting right next to my desktop, not even two feet away, but "shamu" does not appear in the laptop's network window.

    What is really weird is that my wife and I each have a phone and a tablet, none of which show up in neither system's network.

    I know there is a reason for this, but I need help to figure out this reason.

    Have a look at this previous Strange phones in network thread (which mentions Comcast specifically).

    Hope this helps...
