I’ve got a TP Link WiFi extender to help with a WiFi black spot.
It seems to be making dns queries at an astounding rate. Like, multiple requests per second. As I type it’s at 13,000+ requests and rising…it’s been switched on for just short of 2 hours. The domains it’s requesting are:
Domain Hits Frequency time.nist.gov 2100 time-b.nist.gov 2099 time-a.nist.gov 2099 nz.pool.ntp.org 2098 au.pool.ntp.org 2098 time-nw.nist.gov 2095
It’s also querying
a.root-servers.net at about half the rate as the above.
Any idea what this is all about?
