Old wifi network still showing

I initially had actually my WiFi netjob-related via Spectrum. I switched it WOW and obtained a new modem/router an brand-new WiFi netjob-related through new name. The old one continues to show up and also mirrors a more powerful signal than my WOW network-related, which I have actually been pertained to around since the switch. I need to questions/concerns. How can I remove the old network? The router/modem was went back to Spectrum so I have no concept just how or why it still mirrors up. My other concern/question is about the WiFi signal toughness. If somejust how this old network-related is still current, is it affecting my brand-new netoccupational performance. I’ve had two different IT males come look at this and also neither could figure it out.

Any aid would be appreciated. Thanks!

I need to add that I carry out have actually a Time Machine that I use to backup. It has a completely different name than the various other 2 names.

Spectrum has actually had actually a number of different boxes in some netfunctions, as soon as last I faced them. For Wi-Fi, and for phone. Possibility that there are any type of various other Spectrum boxes still around?

If not... Anybody about playing shenanigans, and also seeking to accessibility your network-related traffic? Because if this isn’t the next-door neighbors running with a same-called netoccupational and also if there isn’t a left-over Spectrum box about, then somebody may well be running a rogue network.

As for that AirPort, figure out which Wi-Fi netjob-related you desire to usage, and also wire and configure just that. Shut the various other one(s) off. Having multiple networks in close proximity and through overlapping channel assignments degrades communications. Tbelow are only 4 non-overlapping Wi-Fi channels (1, 6, 11, 14) easily accessible in 2.4 GHz in many countries.

Thank you so a lot for your advice. There are no various other Spectrum boxes around. I'd be shocked if next-door neighbors were approximately anything but no method to understand that. Is there anypoint I can execute to isolate or disable? I use the Time Machine for back up and also have the wifi turned off. Is that what you are referring to when you say two networks? If it is rogue, do I have any kind of options?

The old wifi netfunctions that proceed to display up are still passwords defended. I deserve to still sign in and also one then shows "no IP address" and also the 5GHz shows "Self Assigned". But they don't let me affix to the internet or my other home netjob-related tools. I have to mention I carry out have Sonos on my netoccupational as well as D-Link commodities such as moisture detectors.

I appreciate your comments. Thanks so much.

Shut off each of the well-known Wi-Fi connected tools subsequently, and also check out whether the network-related itself shuts off. With IoT, that knows what might be acting as a Wi-Fi rexternal.

Self-assigned IP addresses usually implies the rogue box isn't supplying DHCP, which suggests it most likely isn't somebody trying to reason shenanigans.

If the Time Capsule Wi-Fi is disabled, then overlook the comments about the second Wi-Fi network-related.

As for the potential for a rogue network-related or of shenanigans, there's not an especially great way to track those dvery own short of wandering approximately and studying signal strength and trying to locate the transmitter, brief of having actually some better direction-finding equipment easily accessible. Or of cycling the power on the recognized Wi-Fi gadgets.
