Is my IoT network being hacked?
I have a Ubiquity Edge Router X to isolate various networks in my house. I have an isolated IoT network, an isolated wifi guest network and private network that can access the IoT and guest network. I have a fingbox in both my IoT and private network. I have auto block new devices enabled for both Fingboxes.
The IoT network is where I place all my IoT devices and is isolated so it cannot access any other network. I have an issue with the static address of my raspberry pi 4 in that network. It has been assigned a static IP address through the router but will randomly disconnect and reconnect on some random IP address. AFAIK it’s random and uses an available IP address.
After many weeks of troubleshooting this issue, I finally resolved it by moving the raspberry pi 4 to my private network which includes computers and phones containing sensitive data. Since then, it has remained assigned to the static IP address.
Is it possible one or more of my IoT devices has been compromised and the perpetrator is using it to infiltrate my network and causing the raspberry pi 4 device to keep cycling through various IP addresses at random.
Is there a way of detecting the infiltration? What is the perpetrator possibly doing to cause such behaviour?
I plan on changing the passwords on all IoT devices as a precaution.
Thanks for your advice.
