It is only showing 4 access point in intruder protection instead of 9.


In the list of devices , all APs are being found. But under intruder protection it only shows 4 APs.

How can I manually tell it to protect all wifi APs

    Hi @Caine

    The reason for getting 4 access points, is that if your devices are connected to 5ghz instead of the 2.4ghz network, you won't see any access points protected on Fing App for 5ghz. All 4 access point protected are from 2.4 Ghz frequency. Fingbox is not able to monitor completely with the 5ghz network as it lacks the antenna to monitor the 5ghz network which will be updated in Fingbox V2 hardware. 

    In order to add the access point for V1-Fingbox, first you need to be connected to the access point network which you want to add. Then open the Fing App and choose the Fingbox network from the dropdown list. Go to the ‘Network’ tab and select either Wi-Fi Intrusion Protection or Wi-Fi Performance and you will be able to add the Access point for the current network your device is connected to. You can only add the Access point either from the Wi-Fi Performance tab or Wi-Fi Intrusion Protection tab.  

    After Adding the access point, you will receive the New Access point alert and you need to accept it as a trusted gateway and the access point will be added successfully.
