    Most of the APs around me have Home-XXXX (Xs being random numbers and letters) as their Essid. They always have wps enabled but I always get Rate Limiting even if I make the -d over a minute long. I've learned a lot about xiaopan and have cracked some APs but have never been able to crack one of these HOME-XXXX APs. Does anyone know anything about them or have any advice?

    What are the MAC Addresses or BSSID?
    Please tell us the first 6 characters

    XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

    Once we know the manufacturer we can do more.

    Thank you

    There are also hidden ssids with Mac addresses very close to those.

    Never came across that router. Not sure of the ISP also. They probably would use a default algorithm to setup a default password. I suspected at the start it might have been a Thomson router which I would be able to help with.

    Perhaps you are too far from the AP. Or it can detect a reaver attack.
