Honhaipr devices might show up on the connection on your Wi-Fi. And you are going to end up wondering which device it is? And how did it get connected? And now that it is connected, how do I make sure that it does not get connected again? All of these questions will be answered in this article. The answer is simple. Most people might get confused simply due to the lack of knowledge.
Today, we are gonna look into the details of this device. And hopefully, once you have gone through this article, you would have much better clarity on the subject. So, let’s get started.
Honhaipr Device is an unknown device. It simply means that your Wi-Fi failed to recognize the device. The device can be any device that is connected to the Wi-Fi network. AT&T routers tend to show this more often than any other routers. It can be a device that you use on a daily basis as well. The router simply failed to recognize the device, and it assigned a default name to the device instead of the actual name of the device.
It can be your PS4 or even your mobile device. It can be a device that you have connected to the network for the first time. More often or not, it is a device that is connected to the network for the first time. Or it can be actually a device that you are not using. Like your neighbor somehow got your network password, and decided to use your network.
What do we do when this shows up?
First thing, do not panic. We are living in the modern era, and all the routers today have some of the most high-tech security measures installed on them which can be used to take care of this. You just need to use any one of the methods that I will provide and you would be able to recognize the device or simply block the access of your router to the device which will help you in saving a lot of consumption of your data.
So, let’s look at all the things that you can do to help you disconnect the device from your network or at least recognize the device. Following are the various methods which you use to do so:
This is one of the most common methods that is being used in order to pinpoint the device. All you would have to do is observe the consumption of your data when the device shows up as connected to your network. Then you would have to just locate the device which might be consuming that amount of data. If you’re not able to locate the device, it simply means that someone else might have been able to connect to your network. You would have to change your Wi-Fi password altogether.
Disconnecting the devices
This is easily the most simple, and also, the oldest method in the book. You simply start disconnecting all known devices which you have one by one to see which one it is. If it is one of the known devices, then as soon as you disconnect that device, the name is going to disappear from your network. And when it does, you know which one it is, and once that is done, you can go ahead and change the name of the device in your Wi-Fi network settings. If none of the devices is that device, then, once again, you might have to change the network password as someone else has access to your Wi-Fi network.
Checking MAC address
This is for people who are a little tech-savvy. Visit your Wi-Fi router page, and there you can easily check the MAC address of all the connected devices. Once you have located the MAC of the Honhaipr device, all you have to do is find the device with that MAC address, change the name of the device to rectify the name on the network. If you are unable to locate the device, change the Wi-Fi network password.
The most common
This is something that I found out during my research. Most of the time, this name is assigned to the PS on your network. So, if you have a PlayStation, try disconnecting that from the network And once you do that, the probability of the unknown device also getting disconnected from the network is very high. If that does happen, you can change the name of the PlayStation on your network. If not, it means that it is some other device, and you can use any of the last 3 methods to locate the device. If not able to locate the device, change your Wi-Fi password.
I hope that you found the information which you were able to. This might help you save a lot of data. Also, it might help you make your network more secure. And you will find peace again knowing that there are no more unknown devices that are connected to your Wi-Fi network. Once you have located the unknown device, you would be able to track and calculate the exact data which you consume which will help you make accurate decisions about your data plan.
So, go ahead and locate the unknown device on your network and kick it out of your network today!
