In the network tab under "Wi-Fi intrusion protection" it states "Protecting 2 access points" but not which two. I have several and would like to see what two it is monitoring.

Is this something that could be added?

    Hi @rooted
    As you know Every router has multiple network interface cards which is the reason, routers are able to provide multiple frequencies(2.4 Ghz and 5Ghz). These are different access points which has their own MAC address(BSSID). The Wifi Intrusion Protection is protecting both of those frequencies and hence it shows the 2 Access points being protected. To check which Access points are being protected, you need to check the BSSID. 

    Please follow these steps:  
    1. Open the Fing App  
    2. Click on the Network Tab  
    3. Click on the Network Details section(This is the directly under your network name)  
    4. Scroll down and locate the Access Point Section  
    5. You will be able to see the BSSID.

    @Robin Thank you, that is certainly what I wanted to know.

    I have three SSID on two different devices (all bridged) is why I was curious as to which was being monitored, I do think it would be useful to show the SSID here along with the BSSID (MAC) addresses.
