FING reporting wrong IP address

I have a printer with a static IP address assigned in printer and in router.  The router reports the correct assigned IP number, FING does not.  I have a number of reserved IP addresses assigned to other devices and this is the only device FING is reporting wrong.  FING does report correct MAC and device type.  Any suggestions?

    Can you ping the device on either/both IP addresses? 
    Fing just gets its information from start ARP, so I cannot imagine what would cause it to mistake the IP address associated with a specific MAC address. If you ping both IPs from windows command prompt and then do "arp -a" you should see the IP address and MAC association.

    I have resolved the issue.  And my router firmware is not listing connected devices correctly nor resolving names.  FING does a much better job of that.
