networking – How do I get my modem’s IP address when using Google Wifi?

Occasionally I need to connect my ISP’s modem directly to initiate a restart.

Normally when I connect to my modem directly, I can either connect to the modem using the vanity URL provided by the ISP, or I can figure out the modem’s IP address, and connect to that (e.g. on macOS, option-click the network system menu icon, and observe the value for Router).

Problem is when I use Google Wifi as my router/access point, it’s no longer easy to find the IP address of the modem. Now the menu item shows me the IP address of the Google Router, and accessing it goes to a page that explains how to manage the Google Router.

How do I find the IP address of the modem which the Google Router is connected to?

When I came across some comments

I can redirect you to other pages without your interaction. Install key loggers. Heck if your browser runs activeX objects I could open a shell on your machine without your knowledge. That last example is rare these days but what’s not rare is tricking you into installing a shell for me, keylogging, session stealing, and redirection.

Or as I mentioned in my post, drop a crypto miner on your machine with the tool I wrote

Written by Anthony Russell in the comments of his answer.

So, this looks bad, obviously. What I want to know is how can I stop these attacks? Blocking javascript sounds like a good start, the original post also suggested to check my device for open ports (they did not demonstrate how to shut them though). What else? Is there a fool-proof way to prevent these sort of (virus injection? remote control?) attacks? I am not talking about logging, though. That’s a given when you connect to any network.

What I’m most worried about is virus injection. But other attacks (like key loggers) mentioned above are concerns too. Just share whatever comes to mind. I’m sure other people will fill in the blanks.

Sorry if I sound like a complete noob. That’s because I am. Sorry in advance.

wifi – Access point uses different BSSID and deauth attack fails

I’m using airgeddon ( to perform a deauthentication attack on my wifi network.

When i put my wireless interface in monitor mode to scan the network from the outside I found the router’s BSSID, which is 10:13:31:F1:48:8D, and then I tried to perform various deauthentication attacks on the network but all of them failed: my computer can successfully send packets but the network is not affected (since my other devices can access internet normally).

Then I ran Zenmap from inside of the network to check if my router’s BSSID was correct and I found that all the devices connected to wifi shown a different BSSID for the router, which is: 10:13:31:F1:48:8C: the difference is in the last digit.

So I tried to perform the attack on the 8C BSSID manually (because it is not detected by airodump-ng) but the attack fails.

This is what I used for the attack:

aireplay-ng -0 0 -a 10:13:31:F1:48:8C wlp3s0mon

and the result is:

00:03:55 Waiting for beacon frame(BSSID 10:13:31:F1:48:8C) on channel 1
00:04:05 No such BSSID available.

using the channel 1 for the attack (the same attack works with 8D and channel set on 1).

There’s a way to perform the attack on the correct BSSID?

google chrome – Recent issues with wifi related software. Just installed new wifi card Archer T5E

I’m very confused. So about a week and a half ago, I received my new dual antenna, Bluetooth enabling, supposedly super fast wifi card: TP Link’s Archer T5E. I installed it, set up the drivers by going to their website and downloading the latest ones for my x64 Windows 10 Pro Edition gaming PC. Just recently after I installed it, I ran into some issues with every internet browser on my computer… Google Chrome would work just fine for a couple days, but then out of random, when i tried to google something, go to a website, or do anything, i would just get caught with a loading symbol for hours. Sometimes I get notified that the page is unresponsive, to which I hit “Close Pages” but then it goes back to loading and gives me the same “your page is unresponsive” message. Restarting my computer worked once, but now it doesn’t. I’ve tried looking for any help I could find but found little to nothing. Other browsers such as Edge have issues of not loading webpages whatsoever either. I’m unsure if these issues are because of my new WiFi card, but everything was fine until I unplugged my old USB internet adapter and installed the new WiFi card. Other internet related functions such as playing online games like Sea of Thieves, Minecraft, Overwatch, Satisfactory, etc., work just fine which confuses me more. Sometimes when I try and close chrome, I go to reopen it and it doesn’t even pop up in Task Manager despite numerous attempts. Please assist me in any way you can :] I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for reading this massive bit btw 😬👏👏

wireless networking – Any consumer-grade wifi routers that do fair bandwidth allocation?

Are there any consumer-grade wifi routers that make some attempt at, and to some degree succeed at, fair bandwidth allocation?

By “fair” I mean something like, if there are 20 users sharing a wifi router, including a few bandwidth hogs, then the capacity available to the low-bandwidth users drops to approximately 5% each (rather than 1%, or even 0% for minutes at a time, which I’ve seen is common).

If there are such routers, then my questions are (a) is there a technical term for this feature, (b) how to do a search for routers having that feature, (c) how to look up, for a given brand/model, whether it has that feature, (d) if it has that feature, how to tell whether it’s the default configuration vs. requiring minimal configuration effort (e.g., settings via the admin login) vs. requiring extensive configuration effort (e.g., DIP switches, new firmware, etc.). I’m talking about how to get this information when looking up routers online and not having the physical product in hand.

This is so I can advise non-technical personnel (such as manager of coffee shop or small hotel) on getting a router that ideally does the right thing out-of-the-box, and/or advising them on whether they have the right router already (and just need to select a setting). If the router came with manuals, they may have been discarded or lost already.

wi fi – “Keep WiFi on during sleep” on Always not working

I have set “Keep WiFi on during sleep” on “always”, however it does not seem to work.
The connection keeps established with my router (I can see the wifi icon), however I need to unlock my phone and open WhatsApp before web.whatsapp notices my phone is connected again.
I’m not sure if this is a whatsapp or an android problem, I was hoping someone has the same issue and/or solution.

ssh – LOCAL system in separate private network does not connect to putty when my laptop wifi is connected to Internet

I have some Local devices connected to my device through the private network in LAN segment and I can access the SSH connect when my internet is OFF (wifi is disabled) and can also ping the devices. When I connect my laptop to the internet via WiFi, I cannot ping my Local devices and SSH connection also does not work during the internet is on.

Do I have to configure any route table in cmd for that

wireless networking – Are all devices connected to either 2.4ghz vs 5ghz WIFI sharing the same subnet and able to interact?

There is 2.4ghz and 5ghz wifi connections available in many cases, if not you can manually configure different SSID for both.

Are all devices connected to either 2.4ghz vs 5ghz WIFI sharing the same subnet and able to interact – or are both bands isolated?
If some IoT devices like Fridge, TV are connected via 2.4ghz, would they be able to “see” the other devices of the Router connected via 5ghz?

wi fi – Wifi not working / hardware, how to connect to the internet

On Windows 10 x64 — not sure if any other hardware/firmware/etc limitations might apply — you can navigate to Ethernet Properties dialogue window…

Wired Connection

…for wired, and Mobile hotspot system settings window…

Wireless Connection

for wireless internet sharing. Though I’ve never utilized these features myself and can’t speak for how well they work, note that (at least for me) they came standard with my build and I did not need to download or utilize any 3rd party software or utility. Hope that helps!
