In the list of the devices which connected to my network, the first device looks like a router, is this my router or another one?

    Hi @Ahmed02, welcome to the community and thanks for your question.

    Typically the first device in a LAN network "could be" the router/gateway, but not always.  Sometimes administrators will move them to the very last device in the last, and I've seen them placed somewhere in the middle using the lower numbers of the network as statically assigned IPs, and the other side as the DHCP pool.

    Typically it's up to the admin on where the device resides in the network.

    Hi @Ahmed02
    Thanks for your post. In order to correctly address this, can you share the screenshot of the device you are trying to identify?
