I don't have any PVR. Modem only as I don't watch TV at all.
Except for my macbook and my cell phone? everything else are wired connection with my new upgrade with Cat 6 Ethernet cables.

Have you changed the password on the Shaw router after discovering the unknown PC?

do you have a Chromecast anywhere? We have one and that looks like what it shows on ours - ie the linux-intel name. For sure unplug the modem and wait - that would knock off the neighbour(s)

From a quick web search:

INTEL_CE_LINUX is your router/modem. The 192 address space is your internal LAN. The 10 address space is the private IP of your modem and router. Edit: INTEL_CE_LINUX is a common firmware on newer routers.
The other is a MacBook Pro owned by someone named "Angel".

A shot in the dark here, but does someone's MacBook Pro in your house have Windows file sharing enabled (System Preferences--> Sharing)? That might be it....

:)

OK, this may be silly but did you restart the router? - Would wipe historical devices that may still show up

+1, and makes sense.

The volumes ARE listed in the side panel under "Sharing" after all.

The System Prefs > Sharing should list the appropriate and shared volumes… and a good place to just check… :eek:

What model of modem do you have? What comes back if you ping that hostname?

You can use network utilities or from terminal: ping intel_ce_linux

ping: cannot resolve intel_ce_linux: Unknown host
Angels-MBP:~ angel$

it says
