New device vulnerability RBK753

Screenshot_20210526-080637_Orbi (1).jpg

Netgear Armor claims to have detected a vulnerability on one of my devices. See the included screen shot.
The problem is it just says "New device" and I have no way of telling which device on the network it is referring to. When I tap the device icon I briefly see a message saying "Please wait..." then it just returns back to the same screen.
This seems like it would be a great feature if it worked. How do I figure out which device this is referring to?

Re: New device vulnerability RBK753

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Armor product. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with Armor and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this "general Orbi" forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:

Good Luck.

This looks like a perfect question to post in the community forum for Armor:

https://community.netgear.com/t5/NETGEAR-Armor/bd-p/en-home-armor 

 

My approach would be to look at the Device Manager to see if there is something with a similar description.  The MAC address can be used to determine the manufacturer of the network interface on the device (usually the company that sells the product, but not always).

I love my Orbi.

Re: New device vulnerability RBK753

Thanks for the suggestion @CrimpOn . I forgot to mention I did check the device manager and there is no similary named device. So no way as far as I can tell the figure out the MAC address.
