I have the Fing paid subscription and ran the tool DNS Lookup today. First of all, Fing desktop was showing only my iMac connected to my network, along with an unknown IP address labeled Generic, and I know for a fact I have several other devices connected to my network. When I ran the DNS Lookup, it showed Singapore and Australia. That seems very strange since I am located in the United States. What is the meaning of these results? This has me worried now.

    @VABelle, your Mac isn't on a VPN by any chance?

    Yes, it is but the server was supposedly in the USA.

    My guess, and it's only a guess, is that your forward facing IP address that the VPN is giving you may not be registered or assigned to someplace in the states.  Either way, VPNS are always a tricky subject when it comes to resolution.
