Forget the Deice question

What happens when I forget the device using Xfinit Xfi? I clicked forget my xbox one device then reconnected it and XFI now identifies it as XBOX One 2, I click on forget again then reconnected it and now it says Xbox One 3, does it name them like that because it has to give it a new name cause the previous one was forgotten? (I don't have many xboxes just one) Is forgetting devices bad for the network or is it OK 

 

Thanks

It doesn’t do anything to the network, it’s just going to keep adding numbers to your devices

Re: Forget the Deice question

But why is it adding numbers if its the same device being connected? If the device is forgotten shouldn't the new connection from the same device give the same name?

Seems that it's just like a windoze O/S. Same thing. Does it really matter to you / make any difference ?
