When a list the devices connected to my network, I assign them a name by modify to better remember these devices, but when I renew Fing lost same name, Why?

    Hey @gigisub, by any chance do you have private addressing turned on on those devices that lose their assignments?  Fing will get tripped up if it is because the Mac addresses could change between renewals.  Systems where you see this can include iOS, Android and macOS to name three.
