Hello. I'm having a similar issue, at first I must be seeing devices that haven't been assigned as we have quite a few older tablets and phones that are now just for the use of our younger children. This morning I was trying to get to the bottom of a connection issue on my Lenovo desktop that has both a hardwired and wifi connection, and noticed that every time I did a network map of our home network, I would get an alert that two new devices have connected. In my network map window, there is an option to select which connection to map: Wireless Network Connection, Local Area Connection, Virtualbox Host-Only Network. Each time I select a different network option to map, two new devices show up. It appears that a new MAC address is getting assigned each time I do this. This computers wired and wireless connections originally showed up under the name "Inventec 231C" for wired connection and "GemtekTe-0FC5," have already been re-named and assigned to profiles, and they both still show as connected on the app, so far the names of devices that have shown up this morning are:
The "newly connected devices" immediately show up in the "Not Connected" section.
Perhaps windows is creating and assigning new temporary MAC addresses for the network mapping process, and it appears that this is harmless yet annoying. When I started writing this I was expecting to be asking a question about identifying the cause, but as it seems I no longer need the answer to my original intended question, perhaps the information might help someone else.
