Same names. I do see at least one nondescript name, and I assume that is my DVR. Hmmmm interesting. Did you assign an IP for each device you have?
Each just assigned with DHCP. You are in bridge mode?

Also using Mac Authentication is pretty useless.
So if you use that. Disable it. These days using WPA2 is the way to go. Most users should use WPA2 Personal and make sure every other base station uses that same setting. This makes sure there can be no communication issue between the 2 stations and thus they work faster.
Picking the right channel and radio mode. This is perhaps the most important bit and the performance of your wifi depends heavily on it. I use an application called Wifi Explorer on my Mac to see what networks are available and which channel they use.
