If it functions perfectly, then that's all you need.
The network map function does not add anything for you.
Not all devices will appear on the map, nor do they need to.
To appear in the map, it has to respond to queries that it doesn't
The network map is basically just a toy for small home networks, intended to
relace NetBIOS based browsing.
Don't be surprised if older kit, or kit intended for non-domestic use does
not appear there. That doesn't affect the network functioning in any way.
