A Generic Device is Identified First by Brand then INSTEAD of by Model by "BlueWave Security", Why?
A regular device on my network, my father-in-law's laptop, registers as a generic device I sought to identify. It identifies by the Brand AzureWave Technology, that I took one step further to find the exact model to make sure it was in fact him, and the options provided were a Tablet/IP Camera/Mobile/IP Camera/IP Camera/IP Camera all with different numbers associated with something called "BlueWave Security". Has anyone ever seen this or had this come up before? I instantly became a little paranoid that his computer had been compromised and was on our network and am trying to determine if my fears are real or if I am over-reacting to something that has a very simple explanation. Can anyone shed some light on this situation? Please help.
