Not sure if this is normal or a glitch but I'm confused.

This also has been popping up when I have been searching the open ports.

    @Leeio , is this mesh network or do you have a router that can support multiple radios and frequencies (or bands)?  

    What it looks like you're seeing are various bands your router transmits and receives on.  (The tip off is that each has its own Mac address and in some cases different channel/frequencies).  This would be normal for these types of routers as they broadcast a single SSID to the world, but can support multiple bands to connect to under that SSID.

    I agree. These Mesh systems have a minimum of 4 channels running at a time. Being two each for the 2.4Ghz, one feeding other mesh router and one broadcasting actual wifi. And same for 5Ghz. And as stated already, uses same SSID for both. That's how my TP Link Deco M5 system worked and my new X60 system. Not sure how great the Fing works using this type of wifi. I've had many many odd and weird things happen.
