Mobile phone with Linux OS can connect to my home router with strong password


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I just wonder that someone have a smartphone with Linux OS can connect to my Home Network with strong password, that indicated in My EIS Home Network Maps, the smartphone Icon appeared with yellow star, and when I checked it several activities were blocked.

My question why this smartphone can entrance to my Wifi Router with Password and this smartphone can take over my Home Network if I shutdown the computer (EIS can't monitor it).

For the information my OS is Windows 10.

Please advise me.

Thanks & Br/egards,

All the router's password does is prevent access to the router's internal settings. It does not per se prevent an external device from connecting to it. So your first task is to ensure your Wi-Fi router is properly configured security-wise.

Dear All,

I didn't using a Router but only modem with Wifi that I already have the strong password. However when I check it in the maps all activity from this phone have blocked.

This smartphone came from a technician of my provider when setting up a problem in my connection, probably a technician has turn WPA key in my Modem for him allow to connect it.

B/regards,
