I have 3 separate "computers" named HTC_FRISBEE.COM showing up on my wifi network, each with a separate Mac address, 2 with the same IP address, and I can't find any information on what they are.

Anyone know who or what HTC_FRISBEE.COM is?

I suspect these are your smartphones... Could it be by any chance?

In our household of 3, we have an HTC-M7, 3 x HTC-M8's, an iPhone5, and an IPad and they all have unique names (and unique Mac addresses) which show up on "Who's On My Wifi". These 3 alien "devices" were first discovered on 25th Feb, and they've hung around since, like the ma-in-law!!

Do you have a password on your WiFi and is it using WPA2?

try fing

turn all the device on and then run the app, then turn off one at a time and see what devices fall off the list, then you can hopefully isolate what device each one is linked to.

You could try blocking their Mac address. If any of your devices stop working that'll tell you what's up. Of course you should have a password on your WiFi, I believe WPA2 is the best encryption to use.

Yes, and I changed the password when these aliens first appeared. Now they're not connected any more. They're just sitting in the What's on My Wifi list of devices, not connected.

So just delete them from the list. Sometimes those types of list show historical information. Trivial on my FritzBox. Or ignore them.

I have tried fing but because they're no longer connected to my wifi, they don't appear in fing. I was just curious to find out if anyone knew what HTC_FRISBEE.COM is.
Thanks for your suggestion just the same.

Do you know what it's linked to?? That was the purpose of my initial post..

I seem to remember reading somewhere that Frisbee has something to do with the HTC Transfer tool for copying data, contacts, etc. to the HTC One from your previous phone. Here's a couple of lines I found:

Frisbee.apk
package: name='com.htc.dnatransfer' versionCode='528047737' versionName='5.0.2320352129.611320.592193'

HtcContactsDNATransfer.apk
package: name='com.htc.htccontacts.frisbee' versionCode='114049908' versionName='1.0.2316281867.541114.462724'
