My iPhone does not show up when I scan   01 September 2014, 07:18

I download WiFi Guard after being recommended by Kim Kamando. I had reset my router a while back and forgot to lock it back down and I got a call from my ISP saying I had download a full season of some show. Since I do not watch TV I know I did not do it. I have since secured the router the best I can such as not broadcasting and changing the admin name and password. I loaded the software and did a scan and noticed it did not pickup my iPhone. I rescanned and made sure I was on a website and it still did not pick it up. How come?

Quite possibly it is just sleeping. Turn it on or activate and try rescaning the network again. Sometimes it takes a couple of rounds to detect everything.
