Some devices can be set to connect with a random MAC address each time for privacy.

 

 

Just change the wifi password and see whether it comes back.

I think you'll find many Chinese technology companies are.

 

 

 

 

Most routers also have MAC filtering functionality so if you don't feel like changing the password try adding that MAC address to the black list. Then you should soon find which of your devices the address is associated with.

Uh, why not compare the current IP to the IPs on your phones? You can see it by tapping the connected WiFi network in the WiFi options screen.

"RF-LINK" suggests that it's an RF bridge to some other device. I'm thinking something like Wifi-controlled LEDs or home automation or something like that?

 

Googling suggests some wifi display thing similar to Miracast? Probably the company has expanded from RF-linked stuff to other kinds of WiFi devices.

 

The MAC address will help identify the manufacturer (although that's likely to just point back to SHENZHEN RF-LINK TECHNOLOGY CO.,LTD.

If you use fing to scan your network it will often give you a little more information based on what other people have tagged similar mac addresses as, so it picked up a couple of my genric sounding android boxes as media players now, whereas it used to just show the name the mac address range was issued to.

Received an email today about this topic:

 

 

Earlier this evening I was installing a bluetooth dongle when my LAN logged an attempt to transit outward. On a hunch I typed the name of the vendor into my search engine; your site, and most interestingly, your site this evening provided the same information/company that proved to be the Chinese company connected with the dongle I was installing on my system. The dongle was/is a SoundBot SB340 4.0 dongle, if you'd like to pass it on to your forum or IT folks.
