    are you sure it's not one of your device ? Windows may show a wrong type of device or the wrong name, you must have a cell phone ? What say the router himself if you log on it ?

    Well I did a search for m0xx and came up with Samsung GT-I9300 which is the Samsung GALAXY S III. Anyone in your household have that?

    Apparently it's a Samsung GT9300. We don't have one of them.

    I don't know what to say , I live in the wood, if someone was connected on my router my 2 German Shepherd will find him for sure.

    Go in the router and lower the signal strength if you can

    You probably already know this, but you can usually also set the router to block certain mac addresses or only allow certain mac addresses to connect to it. So someone would need to spoof an approved mac to connect.

    I actually think it might be a mate who sneakily connected to my router...
    Blocked him anyway...
