Dears,
I need help please! I have faced this alert too many times, most of time the MAC addresses is "e4:7d:eb:43:c5:d7"
"e4:7d:eb:50:31:f5"
"e4:7d:eb:50:36:bc"
which after MAC lookup it belongs to "Shanghai Notion Information Technology" which I don't think I have any device belongs to this company. How can I know if this is a true alert or a false one?

You can see further in the snapshots.

    The vendor you listed, Shanghai Notion Information Technology, is a vendor of radios (WiFi and LTE) for IOT devices.  Could be a plug, camera, wall switch, phone.  My guess is its having a hard time connecting to your network and flooding it accordingly.  

    One way to figure out what it is would be to start shutting down things the next time its broadcasting till the earning goes away.

    Yesterday and Today I got 46 notification in the app and to my email, this was gone lately and now it is back. I am very annoyed of this and thinking of cancelling my premium subscription and get rid of the Fing box.

    Hi Robin,

    I figured out the problem, I was broadcasting wifi 2.4G on channel 4, which Fing was suspected the attack on this wifi, it never alerted me on 5G, when I changed the wifi 2.4G to channel 6, the problem disappeared completely now. I hope some one will find this useful.

    Any other thoughts?

    Thanks
