Yes we have 3 tvs plus multiple other devices including phones, tablets, alexa, 2 rokus and printers. I have looked at each and the mac does not match. I have paused the device in xfi and all devices are still connected.

I have had luck matching the IP address to a third-party wifi scanner I use on my iPhone:

I've had to use both at times.  You are correct.

Well you can't rely on an IP address to be used as a device identifier. With the DHCP server handing them out, they could be anything / change anytime. They aren't written in stone like a MAC address is.

@Msredrebelrose Are you the original poster ? You have a different forum name.

 

If you are, you need to cross reference the suspect MAC address with your actual device's MAC addresses on their labels to find the guilty party.
