Ghost Wifi!

Sometimes you can have the impression you’re going crazy.

I saw this wifi network called “00000000” being available sometimes. When I opened the Windows 8 charms bar to check the available wifi-networks, it popped up after a second or 2 – which is weird.
When I checked with inssider, it simply wasn’t there.
It was not in my profiles, it was not hidden in netsh, nowhere to be found in the registry, …

I kind-of remembered I once renamed my phone’s “wifisharing”-wifi to that “00000000”-SSID.
But I changed it again a couple of months ago (brucon related)

So, jeah, what’s a better way to find out what it does but connecting to it? 😛

Found DNS Suffix being “mshome.net”, never heard of it before, and the the gateway being, indeed, my phone…

But apparently, it’s not a bug! it’s a feature: http://www.thomasmaurer.ch/2013/10/improved-internet-sharing-in-windows-phone-8-gdr-3-update/

Anyway, after connecting again, the “00000000” was gone, and the new SSID was there…
But in WP? My laptop’s <wifi cache> if such thing exists? …

Meh…
