Is DESKTOP-3VLH7FV an Exetel PC?
I noticed it in my DHCP table and it doesn't belong to my house
I noticed something similar the other week when I rang about a fault and was told my router had reset to factory settings, I assume Exetel checked my connection using its own computer

Hi Gingerdang,
No, it's not an Exetel device. It's recommended that you check your internal network security.

Check that your router has remote access for administration completely disabled. We are being probed from abroad 24/7 for open ports used for external admin, eg by telnet. Your router is your principal defence.
