    In my case they are desktop PCs with no bluetooth capability.

    This happens all the time to me in my neighborhood, too. The phone is visible but you can't access meaningful properties or interact with it. I believe the poster who indicated this just comes from being discoverable is correct. Here's a screen cap I took just now from the Network listing in File Explorer:

    If I try to dig further into properties I get exactly nowhere. To me, that means the network can "see" the phone, but that it's not really connected or interacting with the network.
