All my devices have been infected I'm trying to find an uninfected point to start to purge malware from, I thought the modem would be best. Mike

"All my devices have been infected"

 

What Modem do you have?

 

Are you using your own router? (if so, state brand and model)

 

List the number of connected computers/devices and method of connection

 

What Anti-Virus and Anti-malware software do you have installed?

 

First steps:

>If using a HT2000w modem, disable all 4 WiFi channels.<

>If using your own router disconnect it for now.<

>Connect a single computer directly to the Hughes Modem via Ethernet cable<

Proceed by downloading and installing the free version  of Malwarebyes:

 

https://www.malwarebytes.com/

 

Install and update the program then run a manual scan and report back the results

 

Describe what leads you to believe you have network-wide infections?

Describe what leads you to think that device firmware is involved and what you have done so far in that regard.
