Just re-loaded my Fing IOS App as the digital fence function disappeared. On the Fing App I can only get the digital fence icon available on 5GHz band, the 2.4GHz WiFi band, when selected, does not have the digital fence icon on the security tab. 
Can the digital fence feature work on both bands simultaneously? Why won;t it show teh 2.4GHz icon? thank you.

    Hey @SmartHabitat
    Are you connected to the 2.4GHz band? You can only scan one subnet, the one which you are connected to, at a time. 
    May I ask for screenshots of the differences you are seeing please?

    Thanks @Karl_From_Fing , ok, so only 1 subnet is scanned, but surely at Rf (WiFi) level ALL devices are detected, regardless of lower or upper WiFi band?
    I had selected the 2.4GHz band and the digital fence icon is not there. When selecting the 5GHz WiFi band, the digital fence icon appears at the bottom of the Security tab.
    Same issue - anyone else with dual band router and Fing only offering digital fence at one WiFi band ?
