Unknown device

There is an unknown device that keeps connecting to my network. I attempted several time to pause the device. It worked for a while but after a few minutes, it will come unpaused. I got the MAC address and everything but I am very concerned about my WiFi security

Enter the MAC addy here and look for the hostname of the device to see if it is familiar to you. You can also cross-reference the Mac address with all of your known network devices and see if there is a match.
