I sometime turn on network discovery only to find strange unknown devices or phones apparently connected to my network, are they intruders or just being found as they pass close by like all the other listed routers found on my wireless routers.
for an example I noted down what information I could about the last device I saw.
Type Nexus 4
All the other details were listed as unknown.
I keep network discovery off most of the time but turn it on to print to my network printer/Fax/Scanner.
I am a Virgin Media customer and I have installed F-Secure running Windows 8.1
Am I paranoid or should I be worried.
Sorry, I can't really answer your question, but just out of interest, where are you seeing the list of 'connected' devices? I found where to switch on Network Discovery, and mine was already on, but I can't see a list of connected devices anywhere. And, just to double check, presumably the Nexus 4 isn't actually your own phone?
In file explorer if you double click network on the left hand side it should populate the main window with all discovered network devices. (if network discovery is enabled)
I don't have a web enabled mobile so Its not mine and there are a few different ones.
Thanks for your input
