Ipv6 on OPNSense router

My ISP is nice, but a bit slow and dense. It serves me with one single dynamic IPv4 address and doesn’t give a rat’s ass about IPv6 protocol. Their thinking is simple: if IPv4 was good-enough a decade ago (when we had 500 kbps links), why change it now, right? According to the technical support of my ISP behemoth, IPv6 is too new, not in demand and therefore not on their future roadmap at all.

IPv6 standard is not new (it was formalized in 1998) and it definitely is in demand — according to the current IPv4 exhaustion report. Out of five registrars that coordinate allocation of addresses globally, only AFRINIC has few old IPv4 addresses left — and they will deplete them all this year, turning on a black market of IPv4 address reselling.

I cannot put this more plainly: YOU NEED YOUR HOME IPv6 ALLOCATION ASAP.

Luckily we don’t need to wait for ISPs and their mercy to get IPv6 networks allocated. We can route IPv6 traffic from home devices through an IPv4 networking tunnel to a nearest IPv6 tunnel broker and enable IPv6 independently of ISPs. Think about it as a VPN tunnel with an explicit purpose to enable routing and flow of IPv6 traffic.

Note: when you choose a VPN provider (if you need one), make sure to select the one that offers both IPv4 and IPv6 routing through VPN. Once you start investigating, you’ll be surprised how few VPN providers actually do that… Before you ask, I use Perfect Privacy VPN, because reasons.

Netgear Won't Patch 45 Router Models Vulnerable to Serious Flaw

Netgear will not patch 45 router models that are vulnerable to a high-severity remote code execution flaw, the router company revealed last week. However, the company says that routers that won’t receive updates are outdated or have reached EOL (End of Life).

The remote code execution vulnerability in question, which was disclosed June 15, allows network-adjacent attackers to bypass authentication on vulnerable Netgear routers – sans authentication. The high-severity flaw affects 79 Netgear Wi-Fi routers and home gateway models – but Netgear says that 45 of those router models are outside of its “security support period.”

“Netgear has provided firmware updates with fixes for all supported products previously disclosed by ZDI and Grimm,” Netgear said in a press statement. “The remaining products included in the published list are outside of our support window. In this specific instance, the parameters were based on the last sale date of the product into the channel, which was set at three years or longer.”

A full list of the router models that won’t be patched – as well as those that have fixes being rolled out – is available on Netgear’s website.

“When we look at support windows, some of our products last five or six years, while others last only a few years,” David Henry, senior vice president of Connected Home products at Netgear, told Threatpost. “When we launch a product, as it gets old it goes into End of Life (EOL) and we stop building it and wind down [sales into the channel].”

For instance, one such Modem Router that won’t receive an update, the AC1450 series, is as old as 2009. Other router models, while newer, have reached EOL: The R6200 and R6200v2 wireless routers reached EOL in 2013 and 2016, respectively; while the Nighthawk R7300DST wireless router reached EOL in the first half of 2017, said Henry.

Regardless, Henry stressed that customers using both newer and older router models stay updated on security updates, as well as adopting best security practices, including turning off features like remote access or changing admin passwords (which he said is enforced by Netgear).

“I think it is really important that customers are paying attention to the updates we send out quarterly on our products,” said Henry.

The Flaw

According to the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI), which first disclosed the issue, the flaw exists within the httpd service, which listens on TCP port 80 by default. The issue results from the lack of proper validation of the length of user-supplied data prior to copying it to a fixed-length, stack-based buffer. An attacker can leverage this flaw to execute code in the context of root, according to ZDI.

“Given the nature of the vulnerability, the only salient mitigation strategy is to restrict interaction with the service to trusted machines,” according to ZDI. “Only the clients and servers that have a legitimate procedural relationship with the service should be permitted to communicate with it. This could be accomplished in a number of ways, most notably with firewall rules/whitelisting.”

tplinkwifi.net | TP-Link Router Setup | Tp-Link Admin Page Login

Tplinklogin lets you enter the web based interface of the TP-link AC 750 wireless travel router via www.tplinkwifi.net web protocol address. The web protocol address is the default web login for the TP-link wireless routers.

Tplinkwifi.net | http://tplinkwifi.net | tplink router login

The http://tplinkwifi.net is that the login page for all the TP-Link Routers. Despite that model you have got, you’ll be able to simply access the admin panel of the router by simply visiting TPLinkWifi.net from any application and you’ll be sensible to travel. After you access TPLinkWifi.net from your application then you’ll see a login window providing your laptop is connected to a TP-Link Router.

router.asus.com | asus router login | How to Install Asus router

There are two ways to upgrade the firmware version of your ASUS router, either you choose an upgrade online method or you choose the upgrade manual method. In the upgrade online method, you can directly perform the update process through the router.asus.com window. In the manual method, first, you need to download an available firmware for your router then you have to upload it into the web interface of your ASUS router
