Model: Archer AX3000  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: S-Ver = 1.0.1 Build 20200109 rel.37084

I reboot the router automaically every Friday morning. Just before the reboot the router sends an System Log with all the entries since the last reboot. Prior to today, the only entires in the log after the reboot entries were the following for each day:

Did someone get into my router on 2020-06-15 00:33:41? 

Remote Management is off

Local Managment is on for all devices

No, definitely no remote access was done.

 

Other users reported similar logs but associated with network disconnects. If you happen to be experiencing that I would follow up with support.

 

Like you mentioned, as long as remote access is disabled then the router will not accept outside connections from the WAN.

@Tony That takes a load off. I did spend a bunch of time over the weekend working on the router. I identified the 25+ devices, named them in the  and created a spreadsheeet wiht their MAC addreses. so if see something that I'm ont familiar with I can follow it up. I also restricted internal management to my primary pc, my phone and my tablet just someone is coming in through a backdoor on one of the lan devices. 

 

If it happens again, I bring it up with support.

 

Thanks for the reply

Tom
