    Hi, when I was doing a scan with my av (Avast) on my wifi, it came back with a name on it that I don't know
    how it got there. (See image).



    The name Asha302 is mine. I haven't a clue where "Ian" has come from. I have got my printer connected
    wireless through my router.

    Is there a reason for this to be happening?

    Regards

      This is sorted now. CH have pointed out what I'd missed, it says lan (LAN). Oh my, I feel such a fool.

      Mark.

      don't sweat it, we've all been there - done that.
