Non-Satellite (phone) showing on network map


Non-Satellite (phone) showing on network map

I just installed my new Orbi RBR750.  It seems mostly just fine.  I am seeing an oddity on my network map.  It shows my two satellites hanging off the main unit with a nice green indicator.  Then it sometimes shows my desktop or phone labeled as a satellite with a magenta dot next to them.  Sometimes the fake satellite is there and sometimes not.  I don't know what this is trying to tell me.  


Any ideas?

Hi BarrettJG, 


May you reinstal the Orbi app. Your mobile device may need to update to the latest Orbi app version.

Thank you for the idea, but after deleting the app (which I had just installed the day the problem appeared and I posted this originally) the problem continues.  It seems to think my phone is a satellite which doesn't actually seem to impact anything other than looking very wrong and reducing my confidence in Netgear's software.
