    Random telephones appear in "Network" folder


    Is it normal that random telephones appear in "Network" folder from time to time, of the models I never had?

    Not following you. Need a Screen Shot of the Network Connections folder, also need a screen shot of Device Manager showing all devices under the Network tab. Make sure you check Hidden Devices in Device Manager.

    Then just right click on them and delete them. Same for if they show up in Device Manager under Hidden Devices.

    It is people with their smartphone wifi turned on getting close enough to your router/computer. Hopefully you have it secured.
