Re: Wifi

Hello

I have seen something around on the internet that says there is an exploit that can be done remotely that can disable / turn off the wireless on the xbox. The best people to help with that would be Microsoft as they deal with the xBox.

Re: Wifi

IANAL but IMO, your son's friend is breaking the law (Computer Misuse Act 1990).  Section 1, 2, 3 and 3AZ. A console is still a computer, and by telling folk that he can do it (and has indeed done it), he's also admitted to it.  He's a very naughty boy and could (technically, although I don't think he would) end up in serious trouble.😑

This is the lesser known part of computing which parents should be  made more aware of.

Re: Wifi

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can put my mind at rest as after four days of trying to get through to virgin for support to no avail,  I still need an answer so: my iPhone and iPad are informing me that my Wifi is weak security. Do I need to worry am I safe? Thank you all.
