Windows 7: Remove Unknown User From Network

Is TOM still visible? Can you ping it?

It would help if you could screenshot whole page.

Try shutting down/unplug printer and ping TOM. (I have no idea even if you can rename a printer like that, but doesn't hurt to check )

Trying to page beyond that always gives me 1eee.org is not responding with a suggestion to recover the webpage.
That website does tests one's browser :-)
Please post the first 6 characters of the MAC address for TOM.

In post #9 I attached the entire page of the ping to TOM. Or are you referring to a screenshot of something else?

That seems to be a DELL device.

Can you still see it in the Network? and able to ping it if so. This is to make sure it is still online, nothing else.

Screenshot of Router Wireless MAC filter page, it would still help to check the DHCP client table (it may be in Management if not other places).

Sorry, I see now - post 10 - Remove Unknown User From Network

Do you wish to keep a Deny list or Allow list?
- With an Allow list only devices you add to the list can connect to the wireless, but will need constant administration as friends come and go (if they use your wireless).
- If you select Deny and enter TOM's MAC address, it should be stopped from wireless (if it is connecting wirelessly).
