Spurious network device(s)

Something I never experienced with my previous ISP, I've today noticed an unidentified device shown, intermittently, in the "Network / Phones" section of Windows File Explorer. 

 

It's certainly not a device I possess.

Looking at its "properties" produces nothing more than shown above.

 

I did a web search for the device but found nothing. I did however come across similar questions.

 

Is this peculiar to Sky?

Can it be removed/stopped?

My guess would be that's a WiFi-capable digital photo frame.

@TimmyBGood Indeed a quick Google search shows it's an Aeezo 10.1 inch WiFi digital picture frame.

Re: Spurious network device(s)

Thank guys.

 

That would fit, and looking up the "gh" number does show Aeezo, though I only previously looked up the astar name but for some reason it didn't produce. Looking again I can see it now. 👀

Bad hair day! 

 

The odd thing is, it only shows periodically, and like today under "Zebra Technologies TC56", which comes back as a touch computer.

 

Why the differences?
