Gateway and XFi network hacked

I noticed recently that there were over 100 new Unknown devices !! that were Unconnected, and once in a while, one device would connect. 

1. I changed the WiFi password and the Gateway password.

2. I Paused any connected device (cannot Forget them) and Forgot every other device - this is a painful 1 by 1 process.

3. I do not have the guest wifi network turned on. 

4. I added the MAC addresses of 16 devices that I wish to allow on the network (this is the max allowed number - so I'm not sure what I will do if I need to add any more devices). 

 

Was my network hacked? I hope that now new devices will not be able to connect.

Re: Gateway and XFi network hacked

The saga continues! 

I just realized that the Unknown devices that are automatically and continuously getting connected have a Connection Type "Ethernet". So using MAC filtering on the WiFi network does not help. 

 

What do I do to stop these Unknown devices from popping up on the XFi network?
