I don't see any way to navigate to my other networks or fing hub from the windows desktop 2.1.0 app?

    @vikinge, the Fing Desktop does NOT work with a Fingbox.  It's a separate stand alone product.  This is why you cannot see your Fingbox via the app.  See this thread I have quoted from below from @Robin ...

    Fing Desktop is a completely separate product from the Fingbox. From a technical standpoint, in comparison to other Fing products, it can be considered:

    Fing Mobile < Fing Desktop < Fing Box.

    Fing Desktop allows a far more precise engine than the Fing mobile app, but doesn’t require a purchase of a dedicated hardware. 

    All existing Fingbox functionality will still work on Fingbox and there is no subscription for these features. It is a completely separate product from the New Fing Desktop 2.0.

    Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this. You need to connect to the network you want to scan or you can use Fing mobile app and then it will save all the network it scanned and devices on it.

    Hi @vikinge
    With Fing desktop, you can only scan the current network. We have not implemented a feature to scan multiple networks as of now. This can be taken as a suggestion for the future versions. Thanks
