I first want to acknowledge the great customer service from the 5GStore and also want to thank Michael Horowitz for his websites and all the great information he has shared.
Everything is up and running, I am very happy with my Pepwave Surf SOHO MK3. It is attached to a new Surfboard SB6183 and all is stable.
Here is my question:
I am currently rebuilding & upgrading my network from scratch. New modem, new router, new network, separate VLANS, isolating all IOTs, Etc. As I began putting each and everything on the correct isolated network I was surprised to find my Pixel-Phone was already connected to my new network.
UPNP disabled from the start, new network with a different name, different password, different IP address (moved from 192 address range to 10).
When I went to configure my phone it was 100% connected to my new main SSID, no password prompt, no pin prompt just connected. I never disconnected the phone from the old network but it was taken off line when I unhooked the old router/modem.
Guessing some settings on the Pixel auto-connected but I found this very strange. Is this a security issue?
The only thing I can figure is my home PC is signed into my google account and the phone is signed into gmail so it just synced up.
