Hi, I have both 2.4 and 5 ghz on my home router. Fingbox seems to only manage one of them (currently the 5ghz). I need to see both to keep my kids off the network. I can How to do this? 
I've included screenshots. 


I've kicked Lori off the 5ghz. But I definitely know she is on the 2.4ghz at the moment. And it doesn't show up anywhere. 


You can see she's been blocked. on the 5 ghz






On the mobile app, this is all I can see. I can't see the 2.4Gh






This last screenshot is from my computer. This is the only place that I can at least see the 2.4ghz. But, it's not correct. Lori is active on this now. 




Is Fingbox not able to monitor both at once? If I get 2 fingboxes, then can I monitor both at once?

    Hey @jphomrig
    Unfortunately you are correct, Fingbox can only monitor one at a time, you would need two to monitor them both at the same time.

    Ok, but I could get another fingbox and hook them both up to my wifi? and that would work? That's easy.

    If you get a 2nd Fingbox, make sure it’s a V2 so you can manage both bands. This is important as there appears to be no way to purchase a new unit outside the pre owned channels like eBay.

    Ah. Ok. I did purchase a v1 for my first one..wasn't paying attention. Can I use the V1 and the V2 together on my wifi to manage both bands? Or are you saying the V2 will manage both bands by itself? 
    Not that it really matters, since I have to get another one anyway. 

    And what's up with only being able to find pre-owned Fingboxes? Company didn't go out of business...
