Random things connecting to my network

I have random things connecting to my network. I have changed my password several times.
Last one was shanghai-0000
I see a hostname and brand., but nothing more. I pause it then delete it. How do I figure out what it is?

Re: Random things connecting to my network

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.;
