    Can we add multiple "tracking" devices" Our phones can connect as either 2.4 or 5GHz and each have their own identity in Fing. Which one connects is not consistent.

    Used to work like a charm, with latest iPhones I have yet to get this to work reliably.

    @AlaskaDave, one thing that trips it up is if you have private addressing turned on on your apple device.  Because it randomizes your Mac address, Fing has a hard time tracking a device where its Mac address is in flux.  As its a per network setting, it should be safe to turn off on your home network.

    I wish it was that, have had off for my network since having the new phone. Private Wi-Fi Address is off. How about Limit IP Address Tracking this is on? I says its only for while using Mail and Safari however.

    The limit setting should have no effect on what your trying to do. But, if you want to eliminate that, turn it off and see if it clears it up.

    For reference, I have a Fingbox v2, mix of iPhone 11’s and 12 running the iOS, 15.4.1. On a Linksys velop mesh network with 3 nodes, WiFi 6.
