My app shows “Community” where it should say “Network”

I forever have trouble finding the way to do a WiFi speed test (I suspect there are various points in the app where one can trigger one).

It says to tap the Network tab on the bottom of the app (iOS), but I don’t have that, it shows Community instead.

What do I do to get Network back?

    Hi @rneugebauer..  It's in a different spot now.  From the first screen where you see people, ISP's etc, click on the top right arrow.  That will open a second screen.  Along the top you will see devices, network etc...  Click on network.  Then scroll down to Wi-Fi performance.  Click in that and you will see the icon to click for a wifi speed test .

    Thanks for the clarification. However, it’s very confusing that the help pages don’t reflect that change yet.

    I sort of remembered that the Network section I reach that way included the WiFi speed test.

    However, I just added a set of access points and made them publish not my usual SSID (GU32), but GU32n, in order to be able to tell them apart.

    When I chose the network GU32n, there was a reduced set of things under Network, and in particular no WiFi speed test.

    I have since changed the names to GU32 and everything works kind of normally again.


    add-on question: I find it hard to identify the access point I’m connected to. The MAC address doesn’t help as each AP uses several, yet the device list doesn’t reflect them all. Why don’t you guys show the IP address for the AP, or the AP‘s name (it shows a name but not the one I gave it, the router for example shows the chosen name, while Fing shows a more generic device name.)

    what’s the easy way to tell the AP used by the current connection when all APs publish identical SSIDs? Is it possible to know the GHz (5 or 2.4)?

    @rneugebauer , can you enter a feature request for the two items your looking for Fing to do?  There are specific feature request sections in the threads.

    Hi @rneugebauer, thank you for the feedback and completely understand the confusion. Currently, the new layout of the UI  has not been fully rolled out (only on iOS). The Knowledge Base articles will be updated to reflect this change moving forward. Thanks again
