Connecting a Fingbox to a wired LAN with no Wi-Fi
I want to connect a Fingbox to a wired network which has no Wi-Fi AP for security reasons and have this box additionally appear in my Fing app alongside my other internal network boxes.
I realise a lot of the functionality of the FB will be irrelevant on this network but a lot still would be useful to me.
Anyone know if this is possible & how to achieve this without temporarily plugging in an AP then removing the monitored BSSID from the FB when the AP is subsequently removed?
It's frustrating to me that I can only scan for a new FB over wireless on a network from the Fing app even if my phone is connected through a wired connection to the same network and the FB is green and active. I'd even go with adding manually via local IP and MAC address. :)
Anyone done this or have any ideas before I attempt to shoehorn an AP in temporarily?
