    Phantom Attachments


    Whenever I reply to an e-mail from someone using Windows 10 mail it sends along attachments that they can't open. I never intended to attach anything to my reply. I searched on Bing for this problem. I think they're called "phantom attachments". I'm not sure. Does anybody know how to get rid of these?

    :)

    Phantom router on network

    Phantom devices has been going on since Windows 8.1
    Don't worry about them, I get a varying selection of neighbours phones, printers, smart TVs etc. They are not connecting, as you have noted no IP address.

    "Also, any suggestions for a program that will scan the network and list all units "attached" to it?"

    My Netgear Modem/Router/WAP does just that. Just look in Advanced Tab > Administration > Attached Devices. It lists wired, wireless 2.4G and 5G Devices.

    Phantom router on network

    Recently I've noticed a "phantom" router appearing in my network. The Belkin router is not mine, the Linksys is.

    Properties of the Belkin router list serial number, MAC address, model number, model, manufacturer, but no IP address. It only shows up on my desktop, not the Pro 3's or HP laptop's File Explorer under Network.

    Desktop is connected to network with a Netgear WNDA3100v3 N600 Dual Band USB Adapter - WPA2-PSK security type. Pro 3 and Laptop connect to network with their internal wireless connections

    Haven't noticed any "strange" behavior, or usage, on my machines, but am curious as to why it is appearing in my network.

    Also, any suggestions for a program that will scan the network and list all units "attached" to it?
