My ISP's Modem Online light was going off and then back on. This has happened many times and I've had my ISP tech to check and check the connections. This is a problem. I connected my computer to the Hitron Modem's of ISP's and I got a Cadant Router, not Hitron Modem. The Mac Address of the Hitron Modem is not the same as the Cadant.

I agree, I understand. I have a Hitron Modem with a different Mac Address on the bottom service tag. There are some pictures of what I am talking about in the this link. https://drive.google.com/drive/folder...

I have found out that someone had access to my personal laptop, configured an Enterprise account as the Default user account. Then, on my Asus Router, has been flashed with a Raspi, two partitions.
