    Phantom Log?


    When I save a .log file on the desktop it doesn't show up there. I do a search from Windows Explorer and find the log. The properties indicate it is, in fact, in the desktop folder, however there is no sign of it in that folder, or on the
    Desktop itself. The only way to find the .log file is to do the search! This only happens with log files. Anyone make sense of this?...Thanks

    :)

    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?

    N95:8GB Phantom Access Point

    Hi Folks

    After I upgraded my Nokia N95 8GB to the latest firmware it has inherited a new 'access point' - this is listed when I want to choose which method of connection when Im checking email but yet when I go into the settings menu to try and delete it - the phantom
    access point is not there; all the other ones are there but its missing.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might remove this phantom access point from the selection list when I attempt to connect

    Many thanks in advance
