Repeated Requests for Network Context?

I keep getting requests to identify my network. For a while I went through the motions of setting it to a Home network, but the message continues to show up every few hours. I'm using a eero mesh to cover my whole house. Could that be causing the errors?

    @RayleighR , I moved this to the desktop area for better visibility.

    Thanks @Marc
    @RayleighR
    Do you multiple access points in your house? And is you device able to connect to these different access points. It may be the reason it is asking again to set the network context. Can you connect your device one by one and then run the scan on Fing Desktop and then once the network context is set then repeat the same with other access points and check. Thanks

    There are two access points (Verizon FiOS router and eero base) but my laptop mainly connects to the eero. I get the messages when it has only been connected to the eero mesh. Could the mesh be confusing it?

    I believe the same that it could be because of the Mesh network which is only identifying and monitoring the Mesh network. And an additional access point confuses the Fing desktop as new network and thus the alert
