Had this device connect to my network “Technicolor CGM4140COM”

Technicolor CGM4140COM I don’t know what it is. It says it’s a route but I don’t have this type. Anyone know what this could be? I just renamed my network yesterday.

That's an XB6 "xFi Advanced Gateway". See https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/broadband-gateways-userguides.

Compare the MAC addresses. 

 

Their Advanced Security feature has recently been pushed to their gateway devices via a firmware update whether you want it or not, hence the hypochondriac notices. It's buggy.

We've seen many many posts about this here lately ! The work-around is to disable the Advanced Security and not use it for now, it's buggy.;
