i have a orbi router and satellite. the satellite is on dhcp. fing blocks the device when the ip address changes. is there any exclusion for devices based on MAC address?

Welcome to Fing Community! Nice to see you here. We do not currently have this functionality on Fingbox.
You can either: automatically block new devices or disable the setting.
So if the device is changing IP and you have set-up to automatically block new devices - then the device would get blocked.
You could also make a feature idea here: https://community.fing.com/categories/fingbox-feature-requests
Let me know any other way I can help.

Sorry to interrupt here but: The blocking feature wasn't enable by MAC Address? I was in that believe.
Most of my mobile phones are on DHCP in my network and non of them have gain the "privilege" of getting an IP Reservation xD... but they are not blocked by the FingBox when their IP's change. (Yes, I have enable the block new devices option).Keep looking up!1
Mirekmal said:SImple solution is to assign static IP to the satelite... I assume it is possible to bind IP to MAC in router DHCP configuration...
You can do as @Mirekmal said and use the "DHCP reserved IP table" on your router (if there is the functionality) to do this in just one place (you may have to wait till the device request a new IP to the DHCP Server to see the change, or restart the device after setting the reservation.)
Keep looking up!1
