Re: identify a device on my network

Hi @job 

You could try scanning your network with this.

Hope this helps.

I don't work for Telstra, Never have, I am just a Telstra customer like you.
So the advice I give is my own, In my own time, Guided by my own experience/knowledge.
Which I am always happy to be corrected on.

You could block the MAC address of the device in the modem's Advanced WiFi Access control settings.
