The subnet mask typically comes as an option from the dhcp server and since you have no dhcp server listed (also 0.0.0.0) you wouldn't get the mask
Aww right why wouldn’t I have a dhcp server ?? Is that normal ??

In a home environment that is built into your router.

If I don’t have one according to that reading then I don’t have one. Should I let the ISP know because they are investigating everything at the moment.

When should or when would you turn off dhcp ??

When your using an external router ???

I’m just using the router the ISP supplied

You technically could assign all your addresses manually or if you had a separate dhcp server built. In a home environment in most cases people use the built-in one on the router and it's generally enabled by default

Yeah it is enabled I’ve just checked how come it’s showing I don’t have it enabled there then ?? That’s weird I’m wondering whether this router page has been tampered with is that possible ?? Because it’s showing upnp off on the page but oh the technical logs it’s showing its switched on as well

https is preferred as it would prevent someone from sniffing traffic. This is only in regards to other devices connected to your wireless network.

I think that’s what they are doing to be honest

I’ve used a http sniffer myself and I get redirected through cloudflare Amazon aws baidu google api services and loads of different things and a lot of my certificates are coming back self signed
