I have the Fing Desktop app 0.6.4 installed on a MacBook with two different networks: By ethernet to the home network and by wifi to the guest network. But I only "see" the home network in Fing desktop. I need to pull the cord and restart Fing which is rather cumbersome. How do I switch networks without unplugging cables or deactivating wifi?

    I don't have the desktop application currently but in the mobile version you click the network name and it will allow you to select the desired network.

    Thank you. Yes the mobile app works like that. I have a Fing Box in each network. And I have to switch wifi networks to access either. But obviously the Desktop app has different goals and does different things. But it does not support switching networks as it seems.

    I'm sure the developers want to match the mobile application feature set, I really need to try the desktop version but I didn't get in the last call for testing.
