A standard competitive robot used in a FRC robot competition contains a router (often no encryption) that acts like a bridge between the robot and a driver station. This driverstation is typically a simple 2go computer practically confined to controlling the robot.
The setup can be found here:
With the actual router configuration here:
As a team, we were all joking around using our robot offensively and Denial of Service attacking an opposing teams router or taking control of it/ sending commands to it.
Excuse the nubness, but is it still possible to do anything if the router does not act as a AP, but rather just takes traffic from a driver station? Even when working the router does not show up on any other computer. Would it still be possible to manipulate traffic?
