Devices remove themselves once deactivated. The ghost listings can be removed via a router refresh. Turn router on/off or if you need further guidance look up your router here and follow instructions on refreshing etc. the router.

Wow. At least in the case of the MI424WR Rev I, they don't go away. This router's been in a box for something on the order of a year, but it still had the original laptop I used with it in the My Network listing. I started with this:

 

0010 - MI424WR Rev old devices in My Network-crop-annotate.png

As the instuctions say:

  • Click on the Advanced icon.
  • Select IP Address Distribution
  • Click on Connection List button.

Then I clicked on the icon on the right (with the red X as part of it) next to the entry I want deleted:

 

0090 - MI424WR Rev connections-crop-annotate.png

 

And the entry is deleted from that list. When I went back to My Network, it was gone from there, too.

 

Do you have the MI424WR Rev I?

Devices do not remove themselves.
