Channel Analysis scans the SSIDs broadcasted by nearby access points. SSIDs can be manual configured or hijacked by a malware. Make sure your router is not broadcasting those SSIDs, otherwise, you need to purge the firmware and completely reinstall the firewall.

 

If it is broadcasted by access points from your neighbor, you might need to remind them to check their network equipment.
