Hi!

I just recently purchased a uesed Fingbox from ebay and when I go to add it to my account it keeps saying. "Fingbox not found, please make sure you are connected to the same Wi-Fi your Fingbox is plugged into." But I am connected to the same network/Wi-Fi my Fingbox is on, I can see the Fingbox IP address in my router and the light is slowly pulsing green on the Fingbox. So im confused, why is the app not discovering the Fingbox? if I run a regular scan in the Fing app, it even shows up in the list of devices, but it wont add it to my account!

If someone coud help me that would me great! 

Thanks / Hyun

    @HYUN, its possible this unit was not properly deregistered from the previous owner.  I will tag a few folks from Fing to help you out.  If its just a registration issue, they should be able to resolve this.  They will need some info from you but please wait till they respond.  @Robin or @Ciaran, if you could...

    It's snapshot of previous owner's ping account, he also said as below
    ==>  I  just logged into my account and the device was de-provisioned from the account before shipping as evidenced by the attached screenshot.

    No worries @hyun. The Fing staff can check its status via its serial number. Don’t post anything till they ask you though.

    I’m having the same issue as reported by Hyun. Can I get assistance with resetting my Fing box?
