Windows NETWORK scan shows many devices that are unknown on domain

Last Modified: 2016-03-23
Just recently when I open File explorer and click on Network I now have over 100 new devices on my network which are unknown to me. I cannot ping the device or do a tracert however these device all show up on my network map when I am in my file explorer.

How can I find out where these devices are coming from? Everytime I go back to my file explorer there are more computers. It seems like we are connected to a network somewhere but all the VPN connections I have active are ones that legitimate connections.
