I posted a spectrum of all the Wi-fi networks in range of my laptop. The
MAC addresses of the "ghost" network were almost identical to the legit
networks coming from my Hitron mo...
As far as I can tell, at least with my router (which has been flaking
out lately), you cannot connect to the "ghost network". Yes, it looks
like a beacon, but if it is indeed the beacon for the guest network,
then here's the best workaround to be saf...
As an EE student with the proper lab-grade tools sitting in my living
room... I could almost certainly figure out which chip it's coming from
and why. Unfortunately, I rent my modem from Rogers and am definitely
not opening it!Too bad. I did a teardo...
Going to re-post what I found here. I had similar comments on an
unrelated thread.Here's two images of my 2.4GHz/5GHz spectrum: You can
see the "ghost" network on my 2.4GHz SSID. The MAC addresses are almost
identical: My 2.4GHz MAC Address is 00:FC:...
Something interesting I noticed -- My 2.4GHz MAC Address is
00:FC:XX:XX:47:58 whereas the "ghost" one is 00:FC:XX:XX:47:5A, and my
5GHz one is 02:FC:XX:XX:47:50 ... so they're all coming from the same
chipset, is my guess.EDIT: The "ghost" SSID is no...
