That seems logical to me as the phones show up and then disappear within 20 seconds or so.

I think that might very well be what's happening, helps to know I'm not the only one experiencing this

I'm having this same issue. I see a computer showing up named "Full_Ford", and it lasts for about 30 seconds. I've taken the MAC address and cannot find it in my router's list of known devices. Not knowing what this was, I changed my wifi passkey to something that is VERY strong, 12 characters, with a various mix of special keys and numbers, blah blah blah. I also disabled my guest network.

This morning I got up and saw the same thing again. the description shows it as an Amazon item, model #KFFOWI. Google search shows it as being a tablet, although I have no Amazon tablets.

Thoughts?

of course I could, but I'd rather figure out what it is exactly. Can't be a hacker, or at least I'm reasonably sure its not. No way they could have deciphered my password that quickly.

From what I have found, full_ford is related to the amazon fire stick/fire tv as well as amazon tablets

I, too, am experiencing this odd issue. The device changes from reporting itself as an Amazon fire late model to a fire phone, always Amazon.

I definitely do not own this device, and have just moved to a new house, rebuilt my LAN, replaced my WiFi Router, and the device is still here. ***?

I should also add the device is not picking up an IP address, it's MAC doesn't appear in any of the AP or Firewall Syslogs.

I have noticed this since I bought an Android MXQ box which is connected to my network. I've also bought a wireless keyboard which is connected to the MXQ so it may be that. I suspect it is the MXQ box

I see the same on my router, and it is probably the Amazon app installed on the Samsung (or other smart) TV that is emulating a Fire Stick.

Hello, I am a Japanese. full_ford icon appear also on my network.
It seems that Microsoft says WPS often shows icons of devices which are searching access points.
(http://www.firstreview.jp/2013/08/869/ Note: in Japanese)

But, I don't think young persons who have Amazon tablets don't live near my house. so it's very strange.
I could block the mac address, but I want to know what they are doing in my network.
Is there any new information?
