Next, check the affected sites, using the same devices, on some other network.

Go to a coffee shop, a local library, a friend’s house or some other place where you can connect to a different wireless network.

You can also check if another device like a camera on your network if it supports No-IP for DDNS.

With news of the malware known as the “Moon” that has been infecting a number of Link Sys routers (one of the most popular brands) and a report that one gang of hackers is in control of more than 300,000 wireless routers, this is a dangerous time to manage a wireless network.

So how does the average home or small business user manage their wireless routers?

If your router does not list No-IP you can try updating your firmware.

Otherwise, you will need to run our Dynamic Update Client on a computer at the location.

I’ve seen countless posts on the Apple Support Communities, and have received a number of e-mails as well, from people who think they have malware or adware installed on their devices when the router is the true source of their problems.

If you are seeing strange redirects or other browser behaviors that lead you to suspect you may have a hacked router, there are a few very simple tests you can do. (Be aware that you may see a different version of a site on a mobile browser – eg, a browser on an i OS or Android device – than you will on a computer, so comparing these may or may not be meaningful.) If other devices exhibit the same symptoms, either the site itself has been hacked or it’s a network problem (potentially due to the router).

In any event, many people are currently affected by a hacked router.

They may very well have no idea, or they may have seen suspicious behavior but never think to blame the router.

The true victims in this case are the advertisers, who are unknowingly paying someone who is abusing their services.
