What does it mean if my internet source tells me a "jimmys iPod" is connected to my internet and syncing if I don't know who "jimmy" is and there are no iPods in my home?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Normally when you turn ON WiFi from your laptop. All the surrounding WiFi Turned ON devices (up to particular range) are  displayed in your laptop. So, “jimmys iPod” may be surrounding Turned ON device. So, Don’t worry about “jimmys iPod” just surf the internet.

Hope this helps!

    Odd - I never see anyone else's devices showing up through my network on my laptop - not even within my own home, and would wonder if Claw16117 has his connection password protected? Sounds like Jimmy might be surfing the internet, using his network with his iPod.

    I appreciate your response! I guess I should have included that this information was given to me from Fing Network. Doesn't that mean it's directly connected to mine? Thanks!

    I do believe my password is protected. Do you know how I can check to be sure?

    I think the question is whether your network is protected, meaning it requires a password to sign on. Since you're saying you have a password, it sounds like it is.
