Default My kid's (dedicated-guest) SSIDs mysteriously changed this morning...

This morning Guest (kids's) SSIDs became something like "Clean your bathroom...", and "Vacuum the stairs...", and both passphrases mysteriously changed (2.4GHz and 5GHz) this morning.
My son's wired PC don't pull an IP, even on the wire, it became blocked somehow...

I really wonder why?

Do you have a WPS button on your router? Is the function disabled?

The question is, did the kid notice and did it work?

Without knowing how you have your stuff setup theres no telling... what devices and how are the configured. What versions of firmware, etc.

My OOTB SOP is to disable WPS, IPv6, UPnP, and he doesn't know about WPS anyway.

On the old Asus, I'd just throttle him at 2-3MB/sec, but I can't find this option on this $150+ Netgear Blackhawk, only can drop his wired box in in a Low priority, via QOS.

Sadly, he only wakes up with enough time to do what he thinks is important.
I did get a text from him at 10:30PM (I was busy in pound-town) saying "You just left it off?" after he said he couldn't do college homework, but he has a laptop he could plug in in his room, and had to go to school Library but didn't think of plugging the notebook in inside his room, but I let him know he can.

I am probably going to go back to an Asus, as it was WAY more fully featured, AND about 1/2 the price of this Netgear Nighthawk, and try Asus-current again, or try custom firmware on one.
Maybe I'll see if there are any Black Friday deals on Asus AC routers...

If you want quality, you've got to get away from the consumer all-in-one routers. They're all lacking. Get a managed gigabit switch and wireless APs. You'll get better performance, more features, and it's much easier to expand your wifi signal by just adding another AP.

I have a Cisco 3750X with PoE and a TPLink EAP245 wave 2 AP at home, about to add a second AP for downstairs. Wired, private WiFi and guest WiFi are all on separate VLANs, and therefore subject to separate firewall policies. Makes security easy and very flexible.

The SSIDs change to common household chores? Did you... drink 10 beers last night and change them to send a message, and you might have forgotten? That's very odd!

Either of these (in your price point) will be lightyears better than any consumer router/firewall.

Add a corresponding switch and an AP or two and you have Enterprise level security and performance. I'd lean toward the Netgate fyi, pfSense is amazing..

I've got an x86 (Celeron?) Firebox I tried pfSense out on, BSD flavors seem to be behind Linux Flavors, they still seemed vanilla. I did however throw a video card and a PS/2 k/b jack on it once I found the pin-out/cable, but about last month I pulled the CF card and dropped the device in the eWaste pile, as I can't really tinker like I used to, as streaming/TV and homework go across the pipe, and I need uptime as I have a lack of tinker-time these days.
