I tried reading the boards to find an answer and didn't find one...  besides resetting it (easy enough) is there a way to rename my FINGBOX - I pulled one out of "SMITHS" and reinstalled it at "JOHNSONS" and it kept the name SMITHS even after scanning on new network.  Thanks in advance.

    Hi @gmayer
    Unfortunately, as of now, there is no way to change the name of the SSID with the current SSID. The problem here is due to the fact that the SSID is saved in the network when the user perform the scan using the Fing App (also when onboarding the Fingbox). After this 1st scan, all other scans are being done by the Fingbox itself, but since the Fingbox is connected through a wired LAN cable, it's not capable of detecting new SSID(s) in the network. At the moment, apart from uninstalling the Fingbox and reinstalling it, there is no way of updating the SSID.
