Xfinity list my MAC address for my printer as 58:20:B1:5C:BD:DD which is also the MAC adddress listed on my printer.  However, Fing gives the MAC address 02:26:86:8F:D3:F1.  On the MAC lookup on Fing, this 02 device is blank.  If I subscribe to additional Fing services, can they tell me who owns this other MAC device? Thank you!!

    Hi @Bitsy
    Did you refresh the scan or delete the misrecognised device and then scan again to see if it refreshes? Removing a device will only ignore the device and deletes from the Fing App. It means that you do not want to monitor that particular device but when you rescan the network and if the device is still connected to that network, it will appear again on the network. Removing a device does not delete the device from the network.
