Wireless Hijack

| | Comments (0)
I'm posting this from a wireless network that has not been secured. I'm in my new place and the guy with the admin password for *our* wireless router is out of town. No problem. I just put my wireless NIC on the ledge of the window and voila... four other wireless networks to choose from. The third one I try is unprotected and kindly assigns me an IP address via DHCP. Cool. The link quality isn't great. I'm only getting about 20% quality apparently. But when I test my speed from Bandwidthplace.com I apparently can still take advantage if the full 1.2 megabits offered by the DSL / Cable my 'provider' has.

This has been my intro to riding free on someone else's wireless feed. It's a little too easy I'm afraid.
