Wonder if anyone can help.
On our office network (Active Directory, DHCP, DNS etc) we have three
NETGEAR WN802T used as
access points for laptops onto the network. These AP's are secured
using WPA-PSK with a long and
complicated key, and they have had default ssid's, passwords etc
Looking through DHCP on the Server I noticed two address leases from
computers outside our domain.
Trying to narrow down the likely culprits, I wonder is it likely to be
someone with access to the WPA key
or is WPA still not secure enough to stop unauthorized access?
WPA is still secure with a strong passphrase.
Might they have been wired to your network?
Question: Should WPA stop the DHCP server offering leases through the
Yes. Your passphrase might have been compromised, or those might be old
leases. Suggest you clear the DHCP server, change your key
(passphrase), and see what happens. And consider switching to RADIUS,
thereby avoiding the problems of a shared key.
