POSSIBLE VULNERABILITY: Pace 5268AC Leaves Wifi Radio On With No Security Even When is Set to Off.
Just had my Fiber service installed that last week. I want to use my own wifi router so I decided to shut off the AT&T gateway's own wifi. After doing so I noticed that although they would shut off for a minute, the 5Ghz radio would always turn on by itself even though the settings say that it's off. AT&T agrreed that this was a problem and sent me a second gateway. After my second gateway I'm still getting the same issue.
As a note, the wireless radio leaves the 5GHz radio on and creates an open connection. Sometimes it shows the SSID sometimes it does not but I can see it's BSSID (mac address) using the Wireless Diagnostics scanner on MacOS. This seems like a major vulnerability to me.
Support seems to be completetly clueless as to this issue. Anyone has any ideas why this could be?
