PLEASE can anyone tell me about RSS-351540
I keep seeing this network name in a lot of different locations but I don't know what it is. Is it a router? Modem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Seeing it where and how? Like as a potential wireless connection, in a windows utility like tracert or ping?

Googling RSS-[number], I found this:

I still don't know what to make of it.

And, this for RSS feeds:

It's a wireless network. Do u know what a stealth siNRAs is? Is that something computer related? I ask because I keep seeing this exact wireless network name in multiple locations through out the town I live in.

I do not know what stealth siNRAs is. Is this a cell phone your referring to? Maybe the device is just remembering/listing recent possible wifi connection points?

When u search for wireless networks, it's listed as an available wireless network. If u search from a cell phone, laptop or any other device it shows up as a wireless network. Strange thing is the wireless name is exactly the same but I see this network in at least 4 different locations through the city.

Maybe you could use a utility like inSSIDer, NetSpot or Netstumbler -on a Windows machine to dig a little deeper. Is it connectable or secured? Maybe a business that offers free wifi?

It's a secured network and what makes it strange is its in residential areas. There's no business' within miles of any of the locations. I don't have a pc, only a mobile

Did a little digging and SSID is used by Hitron devices(like CGN2/3) on CableOne ISP. If you want to see if different network check and compare BSSID MAC address.

I've learned today RSS-351540 is used by Suddenlink for WiFi access where no other option exists .

Great to know thanks, I also looked it up and see some wifi repeaters defaut to that SSID. There are a ton around my town as well, I was cataloging all the wifi in my area via Wardriving. Going back through the data today I saw quite a few of them pop up, similar configurations, seems to cover whole streets, different mac addresses so I know it's from different routers. Also have suddenlink in my area too. Wonder how one would get the pass for it.

 

It shows up all over in places when you search it on wigle.net I just put the map over my area and lots of people found other ones around here to while war drive.
