Why can't I just enter a device information Brand & Model manually and that be it? Your Fingpedia is, at best, inadequate. Actually a pain...   I've got the box the device came in. Let me enter it!

    Are you talking about the Fing app?  I manually put all my device info in and don't have to do anything else.

    Hi, you can still edit any device and add whatever name or customisation you prefer. To do this, click on the relevant device and choose 'Edit'

    Again, sorry. Not making myself clear. I can "name" the device. However, after that "recognize" takes the brand, Monoprice, but inserts an incorrect model. Mine is a printer server, the recognition is some kind of media player. Additionally the OS is shown as macOS which can't be changed either.  I want to be able to change/edit these as well.

    Are you editing the device on Fing app or Fing desktop?

    Have you tried suggesting the exact model number and icon? While manually identifying the devices, if the exact model is not found then you can scroll down and make a suggestion as well.
