I was reading https://help.fing.com/knowledge-base/can-fingbox-monitor-multiple-guest-networks/ and it says that Fingbox can only handle one network with the same SSID. However, what if I have two routers on my network using the same SSID?

Will Fingbox see both?

    Hi @Netside
    In order to address your query, Guest network is separate from the main network and creates a separate network gateway so none of the devices from the guest network can access the main network.
    Also, If you use another router, then also it will create a separate gateway than main network even if you use the Same SSID. Fingbox can only manage one network gateway on which it is activated on.
