All devices switch to another network's router but remain on my SSID
This began today and it is driving me nuts.
I have several devices connected to my wifi - two iphones, an Air, a Mac Pro and an Apple TV. Today they developed connection problems.
Looking into their settings I see that, while they remain on my network (and thus display its SSID), they leave my router (192.168.1.254) and go to another router, 192.168.2.254. Btw, both routers have the same subnet mask.
Whenever they are on that other router (again, showing my network's SSID), I can log in to the other router because there is no password protecting it.
This router-switching is random it seems, though they all seem to prefer to go to the other router. I have tried renewing leases which sometimes sends the devices back to my router.
I have no idea who's router it is otherwise I'd have knocked on their door and told them to effing secure their network.
What can I do to force my devices to always stick to my network??
