Connected devices shows wired on my LAN. V2.0.0.74

Why do I see all the wired devices on my LAN that are NOT connected to the ORBI?  They all say wired.  Its nice to see this, but that are not connected directly to the ORBI and is really misleading.

Hello MarkWorsnop

 

If the orbi is your main router it will be assigning IPs to all those devices so it would show up in the attached devices.

ORBI is NOT the main router. It would make sense then, but its not

@DarrenM just curious if you heard anything back from Engineering on this and if they plan to include the fix with a future Firmware?
