(As everyone does) I have a local WiFi password that is used for signing in and using the WiFi for local users.
I have a separate & far stronger (64 char) admin password to gain access to my WiFi router (settings, etc).
My question is:
If the WiFi password is guessed is there anything that a remote user is able to do? I'm guessing that there is not, but I have not seen this explicitly covered anywhere and I want to make sure.
Restating For Clarity
Definitions (added for clarity)
- Local Attacker = within WiFi range
- Remote Attacker = not within WiFi range, but an attacker from across the Internet who has discovered my router's IP Address.
Again, I'm guessing that only a local attacker would be able to use the WiFi password in order to get onto my WiFi network. I'm also guessing that the remote attacker cannot use the WiFi password in any way to gain access to the router or network. Is that true?
