    Hi @El_tAkErO

    Generic devices are those devices for which Fing was not able to identify the vendor and what kind of device it is. If there is any device in your house which is using any kind of internet(Wifi) then Fing App can show you all devices connected on your network. You can use this external link to know about the vendor of the device: https://aruljohn.com/mac/F45EAB 

     

    The Fing App discovery will identify devices on a best effort basis, based on the information made available by the device, e.g. the MAC address. There are numerous reasons why the device might not be recognized correctly e.g.  

    - The DHCP server is not refreshing when speaking to your Fing.  

    - Limited information being offered by specific devices.

    Generic is a device that Fing see’s but cannot identify.  If you know what it is, you can enter the devices details manually.

    Can you share the screenshot of the error so I can investigate better?

    The screenshot is not of the Fing app. Are you editing the names on Fing app or a different app?

    Hi @El_tAkErO

    I would like you to follow these steps and location permissions pop up will appear to be enabled.

    1) Open Fing App and Click on the Fingbox/Network name from the top.

    2) Go to "Network" tab and click on "Edit" near the MAP icon

    3) Clear out the Network information such as Address etc.

    4) Next, to the MAP section, there is a small icon to auto-detect location. Click on the icon and location permissions will be asked.

    5) Click "Save"


    Please log out of the application and then log in again and then check
