Hi Cang!


Working off of my mid-range memory (such that it is), I ran into a situation at my church where devices connected to the various WIFI spots (Linksys...configured as either DHCP or Bridge) were not showing up on the device lists.


After some searching, I configured the WIFI profiles in both of my Microsoft Surface devices as "Private" and that allowed the computers to appear.


It may have been a fluke and this may or may not have any bearing on this particular issue. Still...something that might be worth spending a couple of seconds to check. 🙂

Added the PC as the only device on the Guest Network.  Name shows up as "Samsung" even though that is not the name of the PC and the MAC address is correct.  Why is it showing up as "samsung" in connected devices?  Changed the name on myFios so lets see what happens next.
