    Google router default password, as for public facing IP and try default password... then it’s under your control.

    Oh shit no... no... your way is better, trying to get some fucker to work out their IP would be a fucking nightmare.

    I am concerned. That sums up my thoughts about your client.

    I get this a lot too. I always tell them they have to call their ISP because I have no idea what their router passphrase is.

    Meanwhile telcos actually do have access to your router and can see all devices on your home network. That is if you're using a router from them, which many people are

    I had a client call since he had added a link to our website on his blackberry home screen. BB had a bug that wouldn't let users delete these shortcuts. So he called us, the website owners asking us to assist him to "uninstall the app"...

    I actually ended up helping him though. Poor fella.
