I have Telus Optik TV (4K x 4 boxes) and I have Telus Fibre using 4 Telus Boost WiFi antennas (which rocks by the way).
I have been using the My WiFi app on my iPhone, and it all works great.
I do have a question on two 'mystery devices' that appear to be attached to my network. What is interesting is that my router is using 192.168.1.* as the subnet for all my devices, and I am only using the 5G in the modem for the Optik TV, which is using the standard SID and password that's defaulted on the router. My Boost WiFI is using a custom SID and password for all other wifi devices in my household.
I have been able to identify and name all the devices (including the Optik TV devices) and the only question I have, is that I have two devices 'detected' on my network that are identified as devices by CyberTAN Technologies. The IP address assigned 169.254.0.26, and it's hooked up to Band5G_Guest3 network. I have disabled 'Guest' on the router and WiFi boosts, so Im puzzled why I am seeing these two devices appear in the "My WiFi" app, unless something is being picked up on the WAN side of the router (which I doubt)
Im curious if other people see these mystery devices on their networks with the same configuration I have, or if they are something to do on the TELUS side that I should ignore.
Solved! Go to Solution.
CyberTAN is a manufacturer of a few different classes of devices or components for various devices, mainly networking. The brand name you see on the outside will likely be different. A 169 IP address basically means whatever the device is, that it has no internet connection.
Thanks for the explanation Nighthawk, they looked like a provider of networking hardware (from my google search) but I don't understand why these devices are being picked up by the Telus My Wi-Fi app. If they didn't have access to the internet, the Wi-Fi app shouldn't have picked them up and showing a SID that I don't recognize.
Just wanted to see if others with a similar setup are seeing the same types of devices, since this might be an internal TELUS configuration that the app is reporting.
I don't see it on mine here so there's likely some type of hardware that's tried connecting at one point that you may be overlooking. One post I saw for CyberTAN devices mentioned it may also be a home alarm system (if you have a wifi enabled model). If whatever the device is, is misconfigured and isn't set to grab an IP automatically, that could be why it's showing a connection and an invalid IP.
