    Router listed among network computers. Can it be removed?


    Router listed among network computers.  Can it be removed?-capture2.jpg

    As this image shows, my Linksys router has created an extra "computer" on my network that carries my network's name. Ideally, the list should only show the three computers I have on the network. I know the extra computer is my router, but it serves no purpose being there. Does anyone know how to prevent it from showing up on this list?

    Mine also shows in Devices and the Drive part may be because it has a USB port on it in addition to the Uplink and 4 Ethernet ports. I didn't get it in the capture but it also identifies as a Media Device.
