I have a small home network: 3 computers, a cell phone, and a Brother printer. They all communicate via a Zoom modem/router.
Yesterday, Avast [free antivirus] flashed a message, something to the effect that my computer wants to connect to a new network. As my mind was busy, I clicked on a button to allow Avast to inspect this network and did not take a screen shot.
As Avast was running Wi-Fi Inspector, I noticed that one of the devices was identified as “Hon Hai”. Before I could take a screen shot, the name changed.
Then I noticed my router was identified as “Shenzhen Gongin...”. By the end of the inspection, the name changed to Broadcom.
I don’t think I possess any value to the Chinese but could not think of a better topic title..
Any explanation is appreciated.
