    I get a page that gives links for pasting into forums etc, not the image itself.

    Don't know about that. Check your router, it should have a similar page showing connected devices.

    From the first pic it looks like one mac for the modem and the other for the router/ap.
    The second picture looks like a file server/media server. Do you have UPnP enabled or anything plugged into the USB port?

    UPnP is enabled, but nothing is plugged into the USB port.
    Also I just realised its a hub/gateway not a router so could that be what it is?
