That's why you do not put logins and passwords on your wireless router.

Never could prove, just from IP traffic, who is doing what.

I've had LEOs contact me about posts saying that they know it comes from my address...I just laugh at them and show them the curb unceremoniously. They cry about because "We're LEO !" hahahaha My ARs don't know what LEO even means.

You are saying you don’t protect your network with WPA2? You just leave it unsecured? Or am I misunderstanding?

These two are not related.

I get what you're saying about having plausible deniability if your network is not password protected, but that is honestly terrible advice. Leaving the network unsecured creates massive security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, there are plenty of other unique identifiers besides IP address like hardware MAC addresses and network activity that can identify who the user is.

If you're still going to leave your wireless router wide open to the world, then atleast use a VPN.

A) never have ANYTHING connected to a network that can be hacked. - regular wireless router security is a joke
