Not saving device names

Correct me if I'm wrong, but when I change the name of a device to something I recognize, isn't that supposed to be saved to a database somewhere, so that the next time I run the program, that field gets populated with my inputs?  Isn't that the whole idea?   Cuz mine ain't doing that.  If I run the program, change the device names, then wait a few days and run it again, they're all gone, and I'm looking at device names like "amazon-7c47702ef.lan".  Is there a switch or an option I'm supposed to set?

248 unknown ports. How do I get those to disconnect from my router?

After running an IP scan I have 6 active ports, which is correct.  However there are 248 unknown ports.  How do I get those to disconnect from my router?

Why No MAC Address?

I've had to create VLANs.  Prior to making the changes, I got IP and MAC information.  Since I implemented the VLANs Advanced IP can ping devices on another VLAN, but no longer reports the MAC address for those devices.

What could cause that?

I ran an IP scan, how do I get rid the extra active ports?

I have attached a screen shot of the results.

IP Scan found unexpected devices

I ran an IP scan on 192.168.1-254.1-254 and in addition to the expect results of devices I found the following five entries:

Status,Name,IP,Radmin,Http,Https,Ftp,Rdp,Shared folders,Shared printers,NetBIOS group,Manufacturer,MAC address,User,Date,Comments
On,,,,Verizon Router (lighttpd 1.4.38),Tunnel is ssl: lighttpd 1.4.38,,,,,,,00:00:00:00:00:00,,,

I've been wondering for awhile how our solar panels on the roof send in their data, I know they connect to our internet somehow before the router, I've never detected their presence.   Does anybody recognize the above addresses and syntax?

Update a few days later - I ran a scan on 192.0-255.0-255.0-255 and found about 5000 sites.  I thought 192 was reserved for NAT,does anybody know what external addresses are left unimplemented for NAT?  On the business side it seems to be 10, as in

WOW! Huge Muck-Up!

Apparently I've got some kind of nasty in my PC.  My Advanced IP Scanner started doing strange things, like repeating the same device under different IP Addresses (duplicating MAC Addresses and all!)  It doesn't save my renaming, and it copies comments to other devices.  I thought I had a bad install, so I uninstalled and downloaded the latest version.  That didn't cure it, so I'm going to try a reboot, and if that doesn't work, I'm going to tear apart my laptop to figure out what the hell is going on.  

Before I do that, though, has anyone else seen this problem?
