Mesh network - Fing app thinks I’m on different network
I have a Netgear Orbi mesh network with one main router and two satellites. When I hit “Scan for devices” in the Fing app on my iPhone, it asks me to “Switch to active Fingbox”, ie as if the network I am connected to is not my home (the active) network, which has the Fingbox connected. Is there a way around this? Or will the Fing app always think I am not on my home network due to the mesh setup?
Currently I have a Virgin Media router in modem mode which is connected to the Orbi router. The Orbi router in turn is connected to a Netgear switch, and my Fing box is connected to that.
