    Hi,
    To address this, when the Fing desktop is doing its normal health check while running in background, there are chances of unreliable DNS resolution by router and once it goes unstable then Fing desktop catches that and thus warns you. Once you refresh the scan then it is able to actively work and thus everything is normal on Fing desktop. 
    If you configure the router dns settings with 8.8.8.8 then you will find there will be no errors or alerts. DNS resolution going unreliable by router is common.

    There is nothing wrong with the network. These are normal warnings for advanced user if they want to make changes to DNS settings. You can try to power cycle the router and the settings will be refreshed.
