Samknows: No router found

Hey,

Got 1 Gig enabled today along with new hub 4.  When I visit Samknows I get told the router is not found.  Any ideas?

 Thanks

Re: Samknows: No router found

What I don't get going to that page is how it finds the hub 4 in router mode to do the speed test along with what protocol it uses...is their a open port on the hub router mode that realspeed connects too?

Has to be in router mode and if you are using anything like Cloudfare DNS new beta App it will not work either.

Re: Samknows: No router found

Well there you have it then.  I'm never running any telco provided kit in router mode.

I'll stick with Speedtest.net

Thanks 👍

If you don't connect a telco then it won't do anything.

Re: Samknows: No router found

Both of those exploits fundamentally come down to bad user behaviours. Set secure passwords on your Wifi and router login. Not great, but not anywhere near as bad as made out.

Compare that to Netgear which has many remote exploits that are far more serious. So if you had a Netgear router you'd probably more secure running the SH4 normally.

If you want a list of routers with no security bugs in, it's going to be an extremely small one. Even million pound routers regularly need security patches.

And of course, most attacks are going to target the end user machines anyway not the routers.

Re: Samknows: No router found

Both of those exploits are for the Hub 2, made by Netgear. Not relevant at all to the Hub 3 which is made by Arris.
