Fing discovering device not physically connected to network!
I have an iMac that is disconnected from my network. It's not even physically able to turn on as I have dissembled the computer due to a SSD, optical drive adaptor failure, it's in pieces! But, when I installed Fing desktop app for the first time and scanned the network, my iMac is listed in devices found. It is listed as "offline" and was last seen at 2:34pm today. The iMac has been out of commission for about 3 days now, yet it shows up in devices. All other devices found on the network were found at the correct time, at 2:54pm today, when initiating the scan. The desktop app is logged into my account that I have been using on my iPhone for years, could this be the reason it's a listed device and offline? I understand why it would show up in devices, but the "last seen" info is completely incorrect and I don't understand why that would be the case. If anyone can help me out and explain why this is happening, it would be much appreciated!
