Greetings. My name is Randy. I got home after work yesterday and was unable to get my laptop or Android phone connected to my home network. The modem showed everything was working fine and the router was fine.
Then I noticed in the list of surrounding wifi hotspots, a new one I'd never seen -- Trojan.b25 new wifi hotspot at home. 
I have a TP-Link TL-WR940N V3 Wireless N450 Home Router.
Very troubling. Want to take care of this ASAP.

Anyone ever heard of a wifi network / router getting hacked?
Can no longer access my wifi (I think because of this new nearby hotspot).

Very troubling. Want to take care of this ASAP.

Hints? Tips? Thanks you!! :love4u:

Does the network go away if you unplug your router? If not, then it is someone just using a scary name for their wifi network. If it does go away, then what modem router/gateway do you have? All malware I have heard of that is capable of changing settings on someones router does it to change the DNS or something related to intercepting your traffic. It wouldn't make sense for someone to design malware to sneak into your router and then make such a obvious change.
