Have Fingbox on my home network. Fing app home screen displays my network’s name twice, first under “YOUR FINGBOX” with the correct list of devices, the second under “CURRENT Wi-Fi” with some matching devices and a lot of Generic ones, even after rescanning. Why is this happening, and how do I get rid of this second confusing occurrence?

    Thanks for that reply. Just wondering why the two detail screens differ. The “YOUR FINGBOX” network correctly lists 7 online devices and the screen has the 5 tabs for Devices, Network, Internet, People, Notifications. 

    The “CURRENT WI-FI” network shows 10 online devices, 4 being “Generic”, and no change after refreshing, and only has Devices, Network, Internet tabs.

    Fingbox network does continous monitoring while the current network will show you last scanned network. You have to manually refresh everytime to see current network devices where as Fingbox network does not need to refresh. Current network scan is provided in case you are connected to a different network lets say Coffee House Wifi, Airbnb wifi then you can scan devices on your network.
