I have a Netgear78 Router at home, an iMac, an iPhone11, iPadPro11. NetgearGenie shows me there are two wifi networks for 5G and 2.4G as I have set up, BUT there is an additional network, named ATTuMysE6a. I don't use ATT anymore, I use Verizon. Should I delete this network? I don't use ATT?

...Is it detecting a neighbor?

I don't know about NetgearGenie...is it showing you history, or live, available networks? If it is history, sure, kill it. If it is detecting live networks, you can't delete what is not yours. 🙂

What does the Apple wifi dropdown show? That will be live, available networks with visible SSIDs.

The Apple drop down lists my 2.4 & 5G, but in addition this network. I bet it is the next door neighbors. I guess I can't delete it, just aware it is there. Thanks for your response. I had to get my head around just what this WIFI name meant.
