I set up Fing on my home wifi network. I own a small business, and would like to set up Fing with my second wifi AP at work. There does not seem to be a way to add networks.

    So if you are connected to the network that you want to add to the Fingbox then I have a few settings that I want you to match to your network.  These will differ on each Fingbox. 

    Under App Settings I would make the following 2 changes: 

    1. Disable Reverse DNS Lookup 

    2. Change the Maximum network size to match you network size 

     

    These changes should help with the issues in scanning.   

     

    As far as adding the Fingboxes to the different networks, Make sure that the Fingbox is powered off first. 

    1. Connect your device(phone or tablet) to the network that you want to add the Fingbox too 

    2. Scan the network to create that network in the Fing App 

    3. Make the recommended changes to the App Settings 

    4. Connect the Fingbox to the network that you are trying to add it to, and plug it in 

    5. Once the Fingbox is powered up and its green 

    6. Try to add the Fingbox to that network
