Hosts file

Goddur Member Posts: 1
When I open the network explorer on Windows 10 it is hit or miss whether my two NAS boxes will show up. Most of the time I have to look up the IP address of the two boxes and enter them in the network address bar:
Is there a host file in Fing? If not where can I create/find the host file for my LAN?
