For the past couple of weeks my internet has often become unstable (lower download/upload speeds and when pinging google many packes lost). First I thought the ISP is throttling, but today I saw something strange in my Network "folder":
Note that GX5 is my PC name, and it is connected to the internet via my Android phone's WiFi hotspot.
But that wireless router is something new. Shortly after I discovered that thing it disappeared, but it came back after some 10 minutes so I managed to get it on screenshot. For now I have switched to USB tethering just in case. I very rarely look in the Network folder so I have no idea if that router only showed up today or has been there for weeks.
I went to find the manufacturer of my phone's wireless adapter and it seems to be Broadcom not TP-LINK. My PC's WiFi adapter is from Qualcomm. Then I checked what Google has to say about TL-WR741ND and found this:
No such thing exists in my appartment.
Am I being hacked?
I have Windows 10
