I use FING at my office where I must keep up with everything is connected to our network. Being able to label what is what and add icons for quick reference is great! Also, I have a smart home with 3 teenagers. At home the kids keep giving out our WiFi PW and using the FING allows me to see when something new is added. FING is simple, useful, easy to setup and get much needed info. Planning on getting 2 FING Boxes once released. Keep adding features, very, very pleased.
Works quite well, but I have issues. No. 1: I have an Wifi extender and Fing often fails to see devices on the 'other' side of the extended Wifi network. Maybe a timeout issue? Would be nice if there would be a setting to change more details of the device search. No. 2: I have several IoT devices (based on ESP8266 modules) that announce their services over Bonjour/NSD/mDNS. But Fing sometimes doesn't show the services and never shows the that describes the service. Why?
Worked with a lot of routers lately and to be honest its quite confusing to look for the "list of people whos already connected" due to different manufacturers and brands having different layout controls for their corresponding routers. With this its easier to make a white list of mac address filter for people to connect and easier to monitor
This app is awesome and is my go-to utility when scanning the networks I set up for myself and others. I do wish that there was an option to hide the fingbox tab since I am not interested in buying one atm.
Can't separate out different vlans. Seems to think that all my wifi networks are one, despite different ssids all devices get lumped in the one list despite different ssid and ip ranges being used.
It's a good start but the app in conjunction with the Fingbox still feels like a product that's got so much unfulfilled potential. There's so many useful things that the hardware could do especially around parental features such as auto blocking users if too much Internet usage detected.
Lots of updates for this release:
- Enables "Internet Security" checks in Fingbox
- A new Fingbox dashboard directly access User details and data
- Fixed quite a few bugs
