Router question

Hi, I have a Netgear Router R7500v2.  I have identified all of the items listed under Attached Devices except one.  It shows it to be connected under WIFI and it assigned the name LPVDV1.  What is the easiest way of determining what device this is? Thanks

Get Advanced IP Scanner (Famatech), download it, install it and run it. Set to run for your subnet and it will show you all the devices. Software is free. I use it myself.

The router should show MAC address, the first part of MAC address can be used to identify vendor (usually)

John, I downloaded the Advanced IP Scanner (Famatech) but it didn't work for me.  With the exception of two listings under name I get IP addresses and under manufacturer, it only shows three manufacturers and the rest are blank.
It may not show you manufacturer. I am running it here in a client (lots to look at) and a number of manufacturers are blank.

The Names should identify something to you - does for me.

You can also look at your devices and see if you can see MAC addresses on your devices.

So it could be a process of elimination to check of what you have and then look at the remaining devices for MAC address.

Phones have MAC address in the phone settings
I have an LPVDV1 device on my network too.  Anyone figure out what it is?!
