Vodafone Router Analytics

I have been running Analytics on my broadband router and traced all of the hosts except 1.  It has a hostname of "computer".  Anyone know if this might be the routyer itself, if not then what?

Would not be the router, no.  It'll be a device on your network, or a device that WAS on your network but since disconnected (such as a laptop). 

Have you tried pinging the hostname from one of your devices (or even the router itself) ? It may yield an IP address for you to trace.

So the ping from a laptop on the wifi does not resolve the hostname, whereas others do.

It does not show on the overview page, and it isn't in the active devices "block by MAC address" and not on the NAT list.

How do I ping from the router?

Could it be the Powerline adapter?

The analytics shows it is active today and I have accounted for all of the devices I can find.

Is it an HUAWEI router?

Mine never worked properly and was generally not fit for purpose as well as a security risk.
