Security

Seems crazy but there could be a possibility my router has been hacked.

My relative who lives miles away also has a virgin hub and I wanted to know can I just swap them over.

Thanks for any advice

Re: Swap router

your router has not been hacked.
but to answer your question,no you can't just swap them over.

Re: Security

Thank you for your reply.

Are you saying that a router can't be hacked.

Apologies but I'm not tech savvy.

Re: Security

My partner is convinced that a third party has "control" of all things wifi and I'm trying to prove that routers are robust and secure.

Re: Security

your partner either needs to provide evidence of such thing or drop the paranoid dillusions.
it's the latter though.

there is nothing for you to prove and you shouldn't even be entertaining such a notion.
