hi currently fing is unable to detect this kind of configuration i have a gateway that have two wan adapters one connected to a different ISP  and the gateway is loadbalancing the connections per session . 
a fingbox is deployed behind the loadbalancer but   dectect only one service provider for reporting and and troubleshooting ... that's something we can do to improve that situation ? or i need to deploy 2 fingbox ? one for each ISP ?

    Hi @korb3n
    As of now, in your case, you will need a second fingbox for second ISP to be monitored. The Fingbox is designed for the average home network. It can manage/control one LAN or VLAN and one 2.4 GHz /5 GHz Wi-Fi network with the same SSID. You will need to pick one of your SSID to monitor/control via the Fingbox.

    I also have a load balancer with multiple broadband connections.

    To answer your question in a slightly different way. The Fingbox monitors the network it is connected to and as you define the connection the Fingbox uses you by default define the broadband connection it uses.

    For example if you define a live/standby setup the Fingbox only sees the currently live link.

    If you use a load balanced live/live set up it will still only see the link that is provided for it.

    To see wan link A, wan link B and the main network you will need three Fingboxes.

    I hope that helps.
