Hello all, I'm wondering why, when performing a device scan, my PC will be detected as "OWNER-PC", and other times as "OWNER-PC - 2"; should this be cause for concern? There's no rhyme or reason to this, it happens about every other time or every couple of times I perform a device scan at this point. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Are you connected to Ethernet and WiFi at the same time? Your dns may get confused when it sees the same host name twice so it renames one. Try disconnecting WiFi

    Do you have a mesh system or just a regular router?
