    Hi @raghwendra66sah

    Generic devices are those devices for which Fingwas 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.  

      The symbol of this generic device corresponds to either an extender or repeater or another access point present in your network.
