Wireless II

| | Comments (0)
Blogging from San Antonio Caltrain station on the Palo Alto-Mountain View border. SSID=thecrossings.net. No encryption. Nothing but net.

I've downloaded NetStumbler, an excellent little app that gives you a constantly updated assessment of the wireless networks nearby. From where I sit, there are 9 networks around me. Two of which are close and unencrypted -- the main criteria for hijacking. The app also logs the networks you see, their signal to noise ratio, their strength etc over time. If you save the log you can upload it at netstumbler.com so that others can do searches for access in different areas. Ideally my log should be tied to some GPS coordinates, but I can likely upload it without them.

Train is here.
