Cisco EA6500 Router question

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Annie Woughman, Nov 13, 2013.

  1. I've searched the Linksys site and tried using a Google search, but haven't
    been able to find anything to answer my question. I set up my dual band
    router with the 2.4 Ghz band named HuzzaHutch (phony name). Up until a few
    days ago the guest network was named HuzzaHutch-Guest and was using the
    password I gave it. Then I noticed that the name of the guest network had
    changed to Cisco12345-guest with the password BeMyGuest. Does this mean
    than someone has been able to hack my network and change this? I was able
    to change the password but not the name of the guest network. The only
    information I could find stated that the guest network would have the same
    name as the 2.4 Ghz band with guest added to it which is no longer the case.
    I turned the guest network off, but now I have concerns about the security
    of my network. Can someone a little smarter about these things give me an
    idea of what might have happened?
