Is my Fingbox supposed to have an Atheros AR9271 chip soldered in?
My kids and I have been dealing with increasingly destructive electronic harassment for the past two months in the form of repeated deauth attacks, malware getting onto our systems, router getting taken over and personal accounts being hacked. This was why I invested in not one, but two Fingboxes two years ago. My whole network is down again, and I had to open one of the Fingboxes to do a factory reset (my router reported 16 clients connected through it) and I found this Atheros chip soldered on that doesn’t look like it belongs there. From what I just read, this chip has both Rx/Tx capability, so I guess I’m asking for a consensus on whether this is the point of entry for these attacks.
thanks in advance,
