    Unknown ip in log


    Ok so Iíve jus configured my tp-link router and looking at system log I noticed an up address Iím unfamiliar with also I believe I have the MAC address for the unfamiliar ip. How can I trace these addresses? I cannot find any info on theses addresses with my lack of ability. Also how on earth is it possible for there to be an unknown ip on my router litteraly had just reset it?

    Your Router has an IP and MAC address. Your Modem, too.
    Any other connected devices behind the Router will be private.

    No worries.

    Appreciated. However Iíve personally got two other devices that connect to my router. The router address is different to this one and the other devices are different too.

    Do you have any Smart TV's, IoT (Internet of Things, like Alexa, Ring, etc.), or Mobile devices?

    What are the device names that you see?
