Various issues - no connectivity
Fing Desktop 1.0.0 running on Windows 10 64 bit. Laptop. Connected by WiFi only.
- "Connectivity" claims that I am "Not connected" and my internet provider shows "No Internet". This is after having already connected to the Fing cloud service. All other apps on the systems are obviously connected and working.
As an experiment, I plugged in a known working additional USB WiFi adapter. App shutdown and restart still showed it claiming to not be connected.
- Notifications shows a warning regarding "Ethernet link speed is not optimal", "Speed is less than Gigabit: 100.0 Mbps". This is a WiFi connection (I am not connected by hard wired Ethernet on this system). Who has Gigabit WiFi?! Regradless, the app claims I am not connected as mentioned above.
- The app persists in running when closing the window ('X' at top right), showing the slide-in notification "Why didn't Fing quit" and pointing me to the Preferences settings to address this. No setting there seems to make any difference to this behavior.
- I notice that the "Fing.Agent" system service registers the service at an "ImagePath" where that path contains a space character (specifically C:\Program Files\Fing\resources\extraResources\fingagent.exe).
This is dangerous. The path should be quoted to counter service hijacking e.g. placing a hostile EXE in "C:\Program".
