In the past two years, we have seen an increase in employees working from home. This is mainly due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Because of this a study was conducted on a home network that were being used to work from home. The procedure for the study was an offensive approach to try to crack the password of the Wi-Fi router using Aircrack-ng, network mapping to check what devices were connected to the network using Nmap, and two vulnerabilities scan assessment using Metasploit and Greenbone Vulnerability Manager. As a result of the assessment there was only one vulnerability that surpassed the critical level established. However, since the vulnerability could not be exploited, there is not enough evidence to conclude that the network can be considered as unsafe for working from home purposes. Key Terms - Kali Linux, Network Scanner, Aircrack-ng, Nmap, Metasploit, Greenbone Vulnerability Manager
