Nighthawk WIFI Router is DANGEROUS
I have a Nighthawk R6400 AC1750 router.
My 6 year old has a Samsung 7 inch TabA we bought for Christmas.
I have a Samsung 10.1 TabA we also bought for Christmas.
When I BLOCK SERVICES - ALL - Ports 1-65535 in the router settings, my TABA can not communicate to the internet.. (this is good)
When we do the same thing for my 6 year old's tablet, it blows right through the blocked services like it wasn't even there. In order to block her tablet, I have to go into the ACCESS CONTROL and block it there.. Problem is, that also blocks access to the USB plugged into the router.
And here's the funny part, when I go into the admin logs, the router says it blocked repeated attempts to her static IP address.. and yet, she blows right through it.
Yup.. a 6 year old, who barely knows how her tablet works, can hack right through a netgear router... Real impressive netgear.
What is going on?????????????????????
