Yes, all my devices - laptop, mobile, and tablet show up along with my router.

When I have run WiFi Inspectors scans, it scans all of my devices on my network at once.

Periodically, these devices when in range will connect to your network.

I changed my settings to always scan new connections to see if this is what you are seeing and I got a small toaster popup today.

See attached image, is this what you are seeing ?

All I remember the popup saying was that I was connected to a new network. I do not think it said  to what network. I wish I had taken a picture of it.

I have it set to scan new networks and rescan home networks automatically and notify me when new devices join my network.

I wish I had started using WiFi Inspector sooner.

Well that is what I have just set mine back to to do this test (outlined in my last post) otherwise I would not have it set to rescan home networks automatically.  So ordinarily I don't see any of these popups, considering my current router settings I mentioned before and yours appear to be the same as mine.

This popup "Connected to a new network" appears every single time I start my PC, but it's the same network always. I contacted support and they suggested repairing Avast, but I when for a full reset of the PC (for other reasons) and this problem persisted. I don't know what to do.

Not always a good idea to breath life into a topic almost three and a half years old, if nothing else the User Interface is likely to have changed and suggestions in this topic may not be relevant.

Not to mention you have posted effectively the same thing in three topics.
