When connected by way of wireless connection to online internet,
at times a notification from McAfee will pop up and alert me of a connection activity.
When I receive a notification that concerns a
connection activity, the notification message.
Begins with an" I" in circle Icon, then states:
is on line, . . so no IP address or Computer Name is given,
Then when I access the Network Map from that pop up I see several devices onor off line
I can not know which device is the one that connected, I only know that it is not
me who has caused the security notifcation.
How can that be ? How can I enable a reliable security, if
the program can not tell me which device or computer came on line and when?
I realize after speaking to a McAfee technician that they would investigate hackers etc.
for a one time $99 fee, etc. but what's the story here ? I mean is that it. I am about to
do some process of elimination as I use an extension to connect, the router and two other
computer users are in the house, but there names are titled into the connection icons
on the Network Map, . but there are still to or three connection that are only identifiable
by the IP addresses and there is no other determining information such as the time it connected.
