There is an area in my city where my buddy and I drove through and it averaged 20 networks per city block that were wide open. This is the area of the city where all the collage kids live, pretty scarry.MacombMonitor said:When I was still working, I took a Pocket-PC with WiFi detection/logging software, and logged 63 unsecured WiFi networks between home, and the office...a 21 mile trip.
Or have a sign-on screen informing the person that it is for customers only.RolnCode3 said:Personally, I have a 4megabit connection with Comcast...WAY more bandwidth than I'll use on a regular basis.
I actually tried opening my wireless router to make it accessible to outsiders, but it kept resetting without a wireless computer affiliated, so I turned that off. Bottom line, though, is we're all paying for large amounts of bandwidth not being used...I was willing to let me neighbors use it up when I didn't need it.
However, wardriving can be scary for those that don't understand how to avoid it. Hell, this was just "war sitting-in-the-parking-lot". If they didn't charge paying customers for access, than he hasn't stolen anything. If they wanted people to buy products to use it, they should change the password daily, and hand it out when coffee is purchased.
If you leave your door unlocked may I came in?rdale said:"Should someone be able to use my residential Internet connection?
If you leave it open - yes. If you put a TV in your front window and someone watches the PPV you ordered as they walk by - are they at fault? No. You opened it up to them.
You hooked up your wireless router and SET IT TO PUBLIC. You told it "open to everyone." You cannot say "Everyone is connecting, sue!" You simply close it.
You would think such a smart a lawyer would know how to use the quote function.:lol: :lol: :lol:kb2vxa said:"STUFF"
Don't bother.STiMULi said:Water is spilling all over the place. Every day me an my horse stop on the public thoroughfare and we grab a little water before it flows into oblivion. Then one day the owner of the property comes out and says you can't stop here and drink my water.
I say when you turn off your water or you keep you water on your property me and my horse will stop drinking the water.
Later that week me and my horse come through and my horse stops and leans down and gets some water and the sheriff is there and arrests me for theft of services.
I think even Judge Roy Bean would throw that one out of court.
I would contribute $$$ to this going to the US Supreme Court for a decision.
This would require me to go into his yard and turn on the hose. If the spigot is on and it is already draining all over the public property then I or my horse can have a drink.N_Jay said:Don't bother.
If al you were doing is lighting your WiFi detector, then you are collecting "spilled water",
However, you are waking by and notice a hose laying on the sidewalk coming from the yard.
And you are turning on the hose!
