Devices on my network

I have an Orbi RBR50 and 1 satellite unit.   When I run the desktop fing, it does not show any units other than my PC, the ISP router, and the RBR50.   How do I get it to find the other devices in the house.    The initial connectivity doesn't even show my iPhone.  My IOS version shows 16 devices.

    Hi @MrB welcome to the community and thanks for asking your question.
    First, please ensure that you have downloaded and installed the latest version of the Fing Desktop app.  Also please check your OS version and update that as well, as I know that there was an issue with iOS devices would automatically hide their IP and such from a SNMP (ping) request.
    If all of that works well, let's see if we can as @Robin for some assistance on this and ask for his input, he's amazing! =)

    Are all your devices connected to same access point as Windows devices. Fing Desktop can show devices which are connected to same access point or same frequency(2.4Ghz or 5Ghz)?

    I have an Orbi RBK50 and 1 satellite. Those are the only devices that I have. There are no wi-fi extenders in the house. My PC is both Hardwired to the cable modem and wi-if connected to the network

    I think you just answered your own question with that description, if that's an accurate depiction of how you're connected.  If you have an Orbi set of devices as well as the modem/router from your ISP, plugging your computer via Ethernet to that device will only show that device listed when an SNMP request is issued.
    For proper setup, you will want to connect the Ethernet cable to the back of one of the Orbi wireless devices.  You will also need to contact your provider and ask them about 'bridging' the modem/router as you have your own 'router' to handle the connection now.
    Ethernet connection will prioritize itself over a wireless connection, so even if you are connected to the Orbi wireless, Ethernet would still be a dominant connection on that machine.

    Hi @jamzm
    It seems like it is detecting micro components from device as separate device. Can you delete the device from the list and then scan again to see if it comes back.

    Thanks, Robin. I replaced my router and most issues have been remedied. The android I thought was the phone turned out to be another device. Here's a screenshot now. Look okay?
