When I look at "Network" in Windows Explorer, I see the attached. I have no idea what the three additional items are. The two in the middle are my cable router and an access point. Any ideas and how to remove?

Thanks Fred.

I do have a cable tv box, but it is in standby. I assume therefore not discoverable. Am I correct?

Is it possible I am picking up a neighbour's unit.

Also, is it possible to remove these from display?

No, no, yes.
To remove the device from your network map, disconnect the cable box and unplug the power. But, there's no need to fix something that's working correctly.

My Verizon FIOS cable boxes are visible on the network unless they are powered off by pulling the plug.
