    I'm a bit confused by your question, and what you've screenshot from shodan. Can you go into more detail on what you mean by "networks around me"?
    Is 47.89.244.17 your network address? Did you do a geographic search for your area, and those are in the list?

    I apologize, but I am still very confused. Are you locked out of your fing account? Are you trying to reconnect your fingbox to your account after resetting it? And also, why the screenshots of shodan?

    i thought that if i plugged in the ip address it would give me some information on what services they were running and the general location of where its coming from i live in a somewhat populated area and wanted to see if it could have been passers by or if it is coming from my area. yes im having alot of issues i am very new to network sevurity and im trying to learn. im sure alot of it is probably user error but some tjings that happen that i see are very strange. like for instance. in the app i believe in fing settings disable user logs sometimes appear in settings but most of the time dont appear at all. the watch device option in networks samething thing. there are devices that i find have same ssid but signal strengths are not the same orange ssids at times no idea what that does. the fing icon is on rigjt of name of devices same place the flag is on some devices. will also appear and disappear. and the strangest is the multiple access points being connected to the fingbox.i have read a few posts here and all have said it only monitors 1 access point. why does mine have 4.im just as confused any insight would be great

    Hi, you mentioned believing your fingbox is monitoring 4 access points.. In regards to that, I’m pretty sure the top network would be the network it’s currently connected to & monitoring.. The 3 below it, theoretically, should be networks it’s connected to in the past but not at this moment. Does that make sense? Do you recognize all of the 4 SSID’s listed?

    Also, your devices can have the same SSID yet different signal strengths. It just has to do with how close the devices physically are to the router etc. Closer it is, stronger the signal should be. There’s other factors as well, but that’s usually the main determiner. So I wouldn’t be too concerned with that- in regards to security anyway.
