    So I'm trying to figure out a device that is listed on my wifi network. The device hostname changes from Iphone-1 all the way to iPhone-12 in sequential order, but the MAC address and IP address stays the same. The IP address for it has more numbers than the other phones that are connected. For example, my iphone IP address is structured 00.0.0.00 but the unknown iPhone device is 00.0.0.000.
    I'm not sure if it's possible to have multiple SIM cards for one phone for different carriers, but I'm wondering if this device is trackable or I can find out if this connection is being used from a phone already on our network. There is also a new device connected occasionally that is Arcadyen-E51D that I have no idea what it is. If anybody knows what this could possibly be or where I can look up the info from the IP address and/or MAC address, that would be helpful as well!
    Desperate to figure this out! Thank you :)

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    They could be wireless devices from your local area, just because they show up as a wireless device doesn't mean they are actually connected to your network.

    Arcadyen seems to be a maker of network equipment like routers so that could near to you too.
