    How do I disconnect from this topic (now that I have my answer). There used to be a way to cease getting updates to it.

    Hola .. cómo puedo hacer para bloquear un dispositivo que está usando mi red?... Aparte de cambiar la contraseña, eso ya lo se, pero no la puedo cambiar porque somos muchos en la empresa. Es para bloquear solamente un dispositivo

    Hi @Pame
    Inicialmente, me gustaría confirmar si tiene un Fingbox o no. La aplicación Fing es una aplicación gratuita de escaneo en red. Para evitar que los dispositivos se unan a una red, necesitará un Fingbox. Fingbox es un hardware externo que se conecta a su enrutador y le brinda mayor visibilidad, seguridad y control sobre su red. Para obtener más información: https://www.fing.com/products/fingbox/.



    Si tiene un Fingbox, me gustaría confirmar si está conectado a la aplicación Fing con la cuenta en la que está asociado el Fingbox. Puede verificar esto yendo a la configuración de la aplicación Fing y verificando el nombre de Fingbox. Alternativamente, si ve tres pestañas en la parte inferior de la pantalla principal de la aplicación: 'Dispositivos', 'Red' y 'Personas', esto indicará que su aplicación Fing está asociada con un Fingbox. Si es la cuenta correcta y puede ver su Fingbox, siga estos enlaces para ver artículos relacionados con el bloqueo de dispositivos:









    También puede intentar 'Habilitar' la función Bloquear automáticamente nuevos dispositivos 'que agregará más seguridad si alguno de los dispositivos intenta acceder a su red. Para hacer esto, vaya a la configuración de Fingbox. Cuando abra la configuración, la primera opción será 'Bloquear automáticamente nuevos dispositivos' (Sí / No).

    I haven't been able to completely nail it down yet, but it appears to me that the Fing Desktop application is causing the Windows DNS Client to do so many lookups that it's taking 4% of my CPU all the time.  Shutting down Fing seems to have stopped it.  But restarting Fing didn't cause the behavior to immediately resume.  This is a laptop that connects to networks over WiFI, a docking station wired connection, and using a VPN connection, so it's possible that maybe Fing got into a confused state.  Shutting it down and bringing it back may have cleared the issue.  I'll keep monitoring it.

    UPDATE: Yep, not only does Fing desktop itself take too many resources, but it is directly responsible for the DNS client going bonkers too.  I've had to completely disable it, unfortunately.
    I have been wondering for weeks why my "Service Host: DNS client" is constantly using so much CPU on my laptop as well. I finally figured out that it's Fing desktop that's causing it. It causes the CPU in my laptop to be unable to lower it's frequency and the fans to spin and make way more noise than they actually need to. I found no setting I can change to stop this behavior but now I no longer autostart Fing with windows and only run it if I need to use it.
