You can try a google search with the MAC # of the device, it may give you enough information to ID the device. You can also block those devices from your network temporarily. When you find a device in your home that isn't connecting to the internet, you'll know why

Hi cheboyganite, Your question, and the resulting response, prompted me to do a Google search "how to determine who is on your wireless network".  The following link might answer some of your questions:  https://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/determine-computers-connected-to-wireless-network/ .  I realize it's a lot of reading, but you might find the information you were looking for.  If not that particular article, one of the others listed might help.

Good luck, ciao, bj
