I backed this project months ago on Idiegogo, and was excited when my FIngbox arrived on my doorstep. I unboxed it, and was quickly up and running. There were some initial growing pains, which were largely corrected by a few updates the folks at Fing applied to the device automatically, but I still noticed some of my network devices occasionally dropping offline randomly, or the occasional network slow down. I never did pursue this with support at Fing, as other issues were popping up, that eventually forced me to unplug the device, and put it on a shelf, likely for good.
The biggest issue I have is the lack of control users have over the functionality of the device. Once plugged in, there is no interface to interact with (other than making some minor adjustments within the Fing app, itself). You cannot disable, throttle or change anything. If Fing wants to apply a new update, you'll get it whether you want it or not, and if that messes with your network, so be it. I wanted to disable internet speed tests (it can impact network performance) as I perform that elsewhere but no, Fing decides when to run it. Want to stop it from arp posioning? No control over that either.
The second thing that concerned me is where the data lives. Everything collected goes to Fing. I loved the idea of their digital fence, but does Fing really need to know every time someone with WiFi enabled on their phone walks by my house? Or when someone joins my network? Yes, I'd like to know that, but Fing doesn't, and I would have really appreciated an option where the data is stored locally, or is encrypted in the cloud with my own key. I'm certainly not accusing Fing of doing anything unethical or improper with the data, and I understand I probably care more about this more than most, but until I feel comfortable that my data will stay mine, it'll stay on the shelf.
I should have known... like so much technology today, you get to pay for it, but "your" device is totally under the control of the provider. They can gather all kinds of information, add, remove, change features or do whatever they want; often essentially ruining what you bought. Mine's unplugged, and is an expensive lesson in modern technology. I wouldn't run it any more if they paid me to.
They've made improvements to the speed test, it's pretty accurate now. They've reduced the impact of ARP poisoning on a network. The digital fence 2.0 in it is WAY better now and actually fairly useful. Where I feel this device excels is the tracking of new devices coming into your network with the REQUIREMENT to either approve or disapprove of them - by default they won't be able to connect unless you allow them. This is an impressive layer of network security that can't be overstated and is far more secure than mac address filtration.
While not as feature rich as I would like, it still has some nice aspects, a great interface and plenty of back end security features to improve your overall wireless security. Keep in mind this only works on a single VLAN or Subnet. For most home networks this is not a problem. I have 5 subnets and vlans, but it isn't a problem for me as I just keep Fingbox on the same subnet as my WiFi, where I want it protecting.
Overall, this is a pretty nice prosumer network security device. Keep in mind this won't stop malware, filter traffic, or block websites. it' functionality is entirely on the network level.. Securing your WiFi from unknown intruders via unknown/new device blocking, watching devices come and go with alerts from the digital fence. Monitoring devices, pausing and blocking devices, etc.
It's nice to see they've improved this in the last year.
