    The number in the name I believe represent a MAC address.  If your seeing it in the name Fing is giving the device its probably because Fing can't identify it correctly.  If I do a search of the first 3, that is 50:14:79, Wireshark Mac address lookup identifies it as an iRobot device.   Do you have a Roomba?
