If an attacker can access inside my network in any way and make a UDP or ICMP flood attack on any point of the network (server, client or router), can I prevent this attack transiently with jumping on another available ssid on the same router?

I'm asking because flood attack occurs on the network and transport layers but this solution runs on the link layer.

my network

  • I'm confused. Who is jumping? Won't all nodes need to jump, including the attacker? – schroeder Mar 6 '19 at 17:08
  • I am jumping actually between another ssid on same router. Imagine that router has more than working network namely wifi1,wifi2,wifi3 and so on – user3241429 Mar 6 '19 at 17:42

    And you are assuming that the attacker cannot also change to the other SSID? – schroeder Mar 6 '19 at 17:43
  • Attacker can not know next ssid that I will connect to. So to make an another attack, he must pass over these steps : 1. He needs to detect which ssid I am connected to (It can be same router with different network or can be on another router) 2. To crack the password of new ssid. There is only one guy that knows all passwords and that guy is me. Without authentication, they can only make de-auth attack and to prevent this I am using 802.11x 3. Make another flood. I guess, to pass over these steps gain me a lot of time to handle the situation ? – user3241429 Mar 6 '19 at 17:56

    You need access to the network in order to send network traffic – schroeder Mar 6 '19 at 18:35
