    Ciaran, are you planning to integrate the Fingbox into the Fing Desktop as it is the case in the Fing App on mobile devices? I am particularly interested in the Mac environment. Thank you.

    Hi @jciek, no we currently have no plans to integrate the Fingbox & Fing desktop. From the Fing Desktop objective, link below: 

    The main function of the Fing Desktop is to help troubleshoot your network in a more powered and accurate way than the current mobile App, offering better troubleshooting tools & functionalities to help achieve this.

    From a technological standpoint, in comparison to other Fing products, it can be considered:


    Fing Mobile < Fing Desktop < Fing Box.

     

    Fing Desktop allows a far more precise engine than the mobile app, but doesn’t require a purchase of a dedicated hardware.

    I hope this helps. Thanks

    Thank you, Ciaran for your quick response. Fingbox is also a tool to manage/control/check your network remotely. If I may suggest, even though Fing Desktop is more powerful than Fing App, it is still worth it to add the Fingbox feature as it allows the above mentioned actions from the desktop directly. I am sure that once you launch the Fing Desktop officially, all those who own a Fingbox would like to see that feature added.

    Hi @Antonio36996
    Thanks for your feedback and idea. We are constantly trying to introduce new features on Fing Desktop and as of now, the refresh rate is automatic and can't be changed but if you want to perform a manual check, you can perform that. Thanks

    The most exciting news for me. I was wondering when desktop app would be rolled out as I work with pis a lot and now it has been!  Finally, seems like my prayers have been answered!

    Hello,

    I just bought a fingbox about a month ago and just learned there is a fing app. Does this app take the place of a fing box, and I just purchased a device I don't need?

    And if not, why couldn't a desktop app do everything a fingbox does?

    Thanks

    Is there a way for the desktop app to use the descriptions that I've already entered on the web & Android versions?  They keep their descriptions in synch with each other, but the desktop tool is listing things using generic names.

    I'm not really really sure how I feel about this new desktop app :|
    I'm not really in line with mobile apps, meaning it's not a desktop extension of the Fing mobile apps.  It doesn't seem to be tied to or work with any of the info detected by FingBox and Fing Mobile app.
    I understand what this means for those who don't have a fingbox, because the desktop app can give a much broader scan of the local network than the mobile apps could, but it just doesn't feel like it should have the name Fing desktop.
    Again I'm not complaining, only providing my opinion.  I'm grateful that there is something out for the desktop to provide a network context.

    One Request,
    Please allow us to define which warning are displayed.  For example, Netflix and Facebook are blocked at my office.  So it's constantly showing a warning because neither site can be reached.

    I just downloaded the new Fing desktop version on my windows laptop! It's Amazing!!! From start to finish it's quick, fast and hassle /problem FREE! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    A BIG THANK YOU! To all of Fing staff and contributors/testers. Excellent job!

    addendum :

    What I did to start is I unplugged all my wired connection and turn off my wireless devices, reset my modem and my router to factory and started everything from start.

    Did the initial setup of modem-router-computer then my Fingbox. Everything went smoothly and did the rest of my wired and wireless connection without problem. Both Fing mobile app and desktop app catch everything and sync perfect.

    Amazing job guys! Not sure if I overlooked any features, but would be cool to also somehow see the status of your connected fingbox at home, while I'm at the office. Easier to convince my girlfriend I'm right when she says internet at home doesn't work :P

    Not sure if I can post feedback here. Feel free to move it if it's in the wrong section.

    On my computer, Win 10 Pro x64 the Fing app (under connectivity) reports that I'm not connected to a network and that I have no internet. I'm on a cabled connection and I have internet access. Under Home it's been on "Connectivity check in progress" for about 3 hours. 
    If I click on "See Report" it gives me lots and lots of "Passed" but also a couple (9) "Pending". It reports my NIC, connection speed and IP address correctly and reports that I'm connected to the internet and even correctly identifies my ISP.

    I have bounced the App and I have launched it with elevation but that doesn't change anything. As a result I can't see any other devices on my network, which I assume is supposed to be under the connectivity section?

    Hi folks,

    Quick couple of thoughts about this new desktop app.
    1) I have an advisory that my machine is not connected via a gigabit ethernet connection. Great, I know, and I'm glad the app has flagged that, but as (on this network (I'm in a serviced office on a vLAN)) I'm not in a position to do anything about that (and I may not want to, anyway) it would be good if I could dismiss this notification/warning.
    2) It would be cool if I could see my 'other networks' - in particular my Fingbox monitored network at home within the app.
    Other than that, this looks like it's going to be an invaluable tool and makes me want to get another Fingbox for the office even more! Thanks guys!

    All the best,
    -Tom

    Hi, I get the warning below. Any reason why Facebook is used? to test connectivity or collect data?

    Hi @mantas
    Can you create a separate post for this so we can investigate further? To create a post, you can refer to this page. Thanks

    Hi @Henk2Fing
    We have gathered a few popular websites and we run the checks against those websites so we can know the internet is working fine or not. As of now, there is no way to skip those websites.

    Can you create a separate post about this error and share your O.S version and try to re-install the application as well? Thanks again.

    Thanks for the great software/application! Loving it so far! 
    Is there a way to acknowledge/dismiss notifications? I haven't seen anything posted so far (sorry if it has, I just didn't see it)

    Thanks!
