I have been dealing with a hacker and tonight while checking the Fing app, I realized my iphone is listed twice same name but with different mac addresses.
So I went through chrome and my fing account online reports my access point is not at my home but miles away and my router doesn't seem to be online at all. There's a black thing next to it.
I checked my phone and I'm connected to my wifi, along with it's name and all.
I checked online again and the information about the router is stating my wifi name but it has workgroup behind it. I have tried to secure my router 5 times since Oct of 20, like totally resetting it, and I have reported this and begged for help thru the company who manufacture the router that's under warranty. I reported all the information I have collected, to the people working for this company, and they seem to not know anything about workgroup, or netbois, sp? The only thing they can tell me is to not use fing app, and help me reset the router but it gets hacked again and again, even to the point I cannot block mac address of devices I do not recognize on my wifi.
Please forgive my lack of knowledge, when I went to school there were no computers, and despite my constant reading and searching I cannot find one way to stop this.
My question is
How can the same device show 2 different mac addressed?
Why is the access point for my wifi across town?
How can I rid my wifi from a work group?
And of course
Is it possible from the information I have to lead a knowledgeable person to the hacker? I know who he is I just can't tie it all together.
Thank you in advance!!
