I have a Hub 4 and i keep getting notifications that there is suspicious activity on my WiFi. I've changed the password for the network from default twice and its still happening. The strange bit comes in when I look at connected devices there are wired devices that I just dont own.all the devicesThe TiVo I do own and it is wired t my Hub 4, the only other device that is wired is my PS4.
The other strange thing is that I get alerts on my S10 that devices are casting on my network...but they arent because i dont own them. After a bit of sleuthing on my s10 in the Google home app i found the peoples names that are using the google home devices and they live nowhere near me.
Any ideas on how to fix this issue because im stumped, ive changed paswords etc and its still happening after password changes. It usually only happens later on at night but it sometimes happens during the day too and when it does our internet gets really really slow.
Hi, i get that by changing the MAC settings it will stop people joining the network but how can they show wired devices on my hub if they arent in my house? Or close enough to get a Wifi signal. Its not just somoene unwanted is on my network.

Thanks for replying. its not just that random people are on my network, i'd like to know how and why they are there. I dont understand how my HUB 4 can say that it has that many devices wired to it when it physically isnt possible. It also really slows down my connection which is a pain tbh.
I know that some devices show up as unknown. the issue is i literally only have 2 devices wired to my HUB 4 the TiVo box and my ps4 so TiVo is on the list and one of the unknowns is my PS4. ALL the other devices wether named or not arent mine i dont even own them. They belong to whomever is on my network but my HUB is showing that they are wired to my HUB which is impossible. Sorry like i said its a strange one.
