    Are you using Fritzbox on your network for starters?

    Somehow your Fritzbox is confusing Fing's device identification and adding its own signature to it. 

    The Fing App discovery will identify devices on a best effort basis, based on the information made available by the device, e.g. the MAC address. There are numerous reasons why the device might not be recognised correctly e.g.


    - The DHCP server is not refreshing when speaking to your Fingbox.

    - Limited information being offered by specific devices.


    If you are using an Apple device to run the Fing app with IOS14 then please refer to this article which has detailed information on how to make Fing app work with IOS14: https://www.fing.com/news/private-mac-address-on-ios-14

    That is an odd one.  When your doing a trace route , it appears to be returning hops that are not responding to an inquiry as to what they are.  If you have a desktop or laptop, it would be interesting to see if you do a trace route from it to your iPhone and see what the response is.  You can usually do that via a command prompt.
