My iPad's name used to be
Behdad's iPad for many years, but a few days back, it was automatically changed to
Behdad's iPad (4) and when I manually deleted the number, it was soon changed to
Behdad's iPad (8). Now that I'm writing this, it is currently
Behdad's iPad (543), which has been changed from
Behdad's iPad (284) from yesterday!
A few points to consider:
It all started when I installed
YazFi package on my
ASUS RT-AC87U router with
Asuswrt-Merlin 384.13_2 firmware on it and my current network configuration is as follows:
- I have two networks, one is
192.168.1.0/24and another is
- All my devices occasionally connect to any of those networks, including my iPhone and my MacBook Pro.
- This naming thing happens on both my iPad and MacBook Pro (but not to this extent, as it is currently sitting on
Behdad's MacBook Pro (7), but not to my iPhone.
Do you have any idea on why this happens and how can I make it stop? I'm worried it messes something with iCloud, as these names appear on my iCloud device list.
