Possible hacker in the neighborhood or....

nothing to worry about?

I have two routers, just got the second one. Both TP-Link C9 but different versions. I was setting the second one in AP mode today so it acts as extender. Security was enabled but it is a default on Auto. I just looked at my Network and I see a strange computer on it. So I went back in to settings and changed security to WPA2-PSK. Encryption is still on Auto. After that this strange computer disappeared.

So do I have a hacker in my neighborhood of single family houses? Must be someone close at 50-100 feet at the most.
