Hi All,

Today we released version 0.8.0 of the Fing Desktop Beta. Included in this release:
  • Added health checks about DHCP with active monitoring/probing: fing desktop will periodically check the DHCP configuration of your network and alert in case of problems such as a DHCP that is no more allocating IP addresses and also about multiple DHCP servers active on the network at the same time. The new checks are very useful to troubleshoot issues happening to devices other than your laptop, that could have problems joining your network.
  • Added healthcheck/detection of mobile Hotspot connection
  • Added informational check reporting when computer DNS overrides network DNS configuration
As ever, thank you for your feedback and input to date.

Ciaran, Robin & all of the Fing team

    After the auto-install today (0.8), my local area network scan seems to have a problem.  You can see the scan as it happens but after the scan is completed the application window turns blank.

    @thomasw80 thank you for reporting, I am sorry to hear. Can you confirm what device/platform you are operating Fing Desktop on? Is this happening on any other tabs/functionality?

    After rebooting the PC completely (turning it off and then back on) Fing started to work fine.  Not sure what happened but all is well now.  
    Thanks
