I've been looking at the Home Network - Devices screen from the HH5 and wondered about the icons that it chooses. If you have a look at my network below, my SkyHD box seems to be identified as a games thingy and while my other half's iPhone 5 identifies as a smartphone, my iPhone 4S seems to identify as a tablet. I'm guessing that it doesn't make any difference at all, but I'm interested in how the HH5 is selecting the device icons.
And you might think that something as common as a printer would have its own symbol rather than a question mark!
Huh? How come you have a variety of icons while I have just laptopn icons? How do I get this!
What firmware are you on?
I wonder why I didnt get this...
I'm sure there are many posters on this forum wishing this is all they had to worry about!
Yes, but it would still be nice to know gg.
OK, I'm curious, why would it be nice to know? What possible difference does it make to your connection or use of the homehub to connect the devices to the Internet.
How do you even get these icons! I'm still stuck with laptop icons. Anyone know?
Anyway, I think the way it chooses is through how it access the internet and what data it retrives. (e.g retrieving game data)
Maybe BT just keeps a database of which is which. But they may of made a mistake. Thats what I think.
I guess the icons may be created refering to the MAC address.
Mine also have letters or numbers too what do those mean . Can anyone help
The letters and numbers are the MAC addresses, the 192.168.1.xxx are the IP addresses of the devices.
