    Hi @PUSS_IN_BOOTS , welcome to the forums.  The name you mentioned is a manufacturer of embedded wifi chips.  Often associated with smart TV's and appliances.  Have you added any of these prior to the alert?  

    You will Find with Fing (and other device like it) that if it can't identify a device, say a part TV from Sony, it will use what it can identify and in this case could be the wifi adapter in the TV.
