    How to check if someone is attacking my network


    Hello,

    I was wondering if it's possible for attackers to cling to your network and maybe even configuring routers settings so that they can silently see what your'e doing, and can I check for that?

    For example if you entered some dubious websites.

    My internet is not working right lately so I was wondering if maybe I've got someone "invisble" spying or doing something else with my network (There are a few computers connected to my network)

    Ty

    :)

    How to check if my router UPnP is working

    Ok, I figured out a way to check for open ports: miniupnpc . It's a open source UPnP client and can be downloaded here:

    MiniUPnP download zone

    The link for the Windows binary file at the time of this post is:
    http://miniupnp.free.fr/files/download.php?file=upnpc-exe-win32-20150918.zip
    . Make sure you download the latest version from the main page though.

    I tested it using a Linux system and worked great, it gave me exactly what I was looking for.

  3. how to check if my Nokia phone is branded for a provider?

    Device may have been unlocked by network provider, but may still have network branding determined by the seven character alphanumeric product code (found either on label under battery or in case of E7 type *#0000# upon dialler) and find under "Product code").

    You can try entering your router to see what's connected. In a browser type 192.168..1.1 in the address bar and hit enter. If asked for a user name and password try admin for user name and password for the password. I would also do a virus scan and I would also check for malware with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    You could also try rebooting your cable modem and router. On my system I unplug my Comcast cable modem and remove the battery. Then I unplug my router. I leave them unplugged for about a minute or two. Then I replace the battery and plugin the modem. I let the modem reload then I plug my router back in and let it reload. It doesn't happen very often but there have been times I lost my internet speed and resetting brings it back.

    Thanks, under what menu entry in the router's setup page should it be? (To see what's connected)

    But will that force all others to quit? Or they already have the DNS or stuff like that?

    Someone would have to setup another access point to trick your computer to think that one is yours. Then all that they do is set up packet capturing with a set of Linux tools that are mainly for troubleshooting.

    In router page check for something that shows 'Network status' or 'DHCP clients'

    On my Netgear router it's under Attached Devices.

    Every time I had to reset my modem and router all my devices automatically reconnected.

    Thanks guys!
    so it seems right, but I still get many sudden - short period disconnections, and in the browsers it tells me that DNS server stopped responding or something like that - could it then be a problem with the internet provider or infrastructure/bad network hardware or cable, rather than an attacker?

    You may want to change your Primary and / or secondary DNS server address to one of the larger public ones in your router ...

    Google have 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 available for free Public DNS Google Developers

    some ISP supplied routers will not allow this so would need to be done at the Device level

    How to check if someone is attacking my network

    Hi there

    Most routers will have a decent set of logs -- choose whatever you want and some of the better ones will even email when specific events are triggered.

    Mine has "system" type logs and "Security" logs -- you should see what's available from the Router login menu.


    How to check if someone is attacking my network [​IMG]


    Windows software etc is OK but by then it's TOO late --you need to see if people are attempting to connect BEFORE they actually do.

    Things like Malwarebytes are "AFTER THE FACT" software -- Router will monitor INBOUND stuff from wherever it comes BEFORE they get on to your machine.

    Cheers

    Something else is going on either with the computer, Gateway or Modem if the modem is separate from the Gateway. Also can happen if too many requests get thrown at the Gateway and it pukes because the CPU is too slow and not enough onboard RAM available.

    We usually see this with low grade consumer hardware or cheap leased out equipment from ISP's.
