Unknown Devices

I am on the Xfinity XFI app and it is showing to devices that I have no clue what they are. One says the manufacturer is HonHaiPr and the other is LeteonTe. I have turned on and off all our devices to try and figure it out, but nothing happens. Anyone have any idea what these are or if I should block them?

Re: Unknown Devices

"HonHaiPr" is probably Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., a.k.a. Foxconn -- see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foxconn.

 

"LiteonTe" is probably Lite-On Technology Corporation -- see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lite-On.

If you google HonHairPr and LiteOnTE you'll gets lots of info (from chips to power chords to blue ray players etc). You could always Pause those devices and see if anyone complains. Then you will know what they are :-)

I have similar devices but with about 40 others. The host name for one of them was departed magic. Have you seen that name? I have loads of trouble getting rid of these “new” devices.

Foxconn makes chips for Playstation. Maybe you have a Playstation connected via wifi.

I figured put what our "Liteon" devise is -- it's an Acer laptop. Interestingly, the power cord, the brick part, says "Liteon" on it.
Hope this helps you.

Re: Unknown Devices

I have the HonHairPR device attached to my WiFi and I do not have a PlayStation. How do we "forget device" by disconnecting it from our home network?

Re: Unknown Devices

Do you want to forget the device?  It's not clear.  Do you know how to forget a device?

Re: Unknown Devices

I have the same two devices in my list; I’m thinking it may be chips in the Xfinity router? It’s a little concerning, because it shows as transmitting data. All I can think is that it’s pinging my devices? You’d think the app would be able to screen out its own device, so who knows. Since a bunch of us have the same issue I’m leaning towards it being an Xfinity thing.

Re: Unknown Devices

Click on the device, then scroll down, under more info select device details, then forget device. I’m hesitant though, because if it is an Xfinity device, this router barely works as it is.

Re: Unknown Devices

I had a similar HonHaiPr- address.  Under device details, i got the IP address and plugged it into my browser.  It turns out it was my wireless HP Laserjet Printer.

Re: Unknown Devices

I have a HonHaiPR... it is my Brother Printer.

Re: Unknown Devices

How did you get that to work?

Re: Unknown Devices

Every device name has that weird random-looking 4 characters after the dash. Yours show FBF9 and 6799. Those numbers are not random. They are the last 4 digits of your device’s MAC address. Every device has a unique MAC address. When trying to identify devices, check the MAC addresses. As I connect my devices to the network, I use the MAC address to identify it and give it a good descriptive name and then assign it to a user or category.

Re: Unknown Devices

Excellent idea. Turns out my HonHaiPr s also my HP Laserjet printer.

Re: Unknown Devices

After checking my Device Details page and turning on and off all the devices on my network, I discovered that the LiteonTe devices are the SONY BluRay/DVD players that we have connected, which play DVDs but also connect to the internet to stream Netflix, HULU, Amazon and others.  I would advise checking to see if you have one of these types of players on your network.

Re: Unknown Devices

I have same devices showing up, but we figured out the Liteonte was my husbanfs desktop... still have no clue on the HonHiaPr. Did you ever figure it out?

Re: Unknown Devices

For us that HonHiaPr ended up being my sons PS4.   Haven't figured out what the LiteonTe is linked to yet.  We also have one that keeps popping on and off called SugaElec...  I finally paused it.  Guess we will find out if someone starts complaining.  Smiley Happy
