Re: What if someone uses it to download copyrighted movies or child porn?

I am guessing that if the public wifi is still functional with the modem in bridge mode, it's going to be using the 67.something IP.

It's going to use an IP attributed directly by the provider to the "guest" authenticating to it, and it's going to be different from the one the operator gives you.
