My Acer Aspire laptop with an external WiFi plug is showing up a Raspberry Pi device. Any idea why

    Do you have a raspberry device on your network?

    The Fing App discovery will identify devices on a best effort basis, based on the information made available by the device, e.g. the MAC address. There are numerous reasons why the device might not be recognised correctly e.g.

    - The DHCP server is not refreshing when speaking to your Fing App.

    - Limited information being offered by specific devices.

    If you are using an Apple device to run the Fing app with IOS14 then please refer to this article which has detailed information on how to make Fing app work with IOS14:

    You can manually recognise your device by clicking on 'Find exact model'.
