  here's the story : my laptop has a built in wireless card so I can go any where in my house with my laptop and go online since I have a wireless router....once a week I go over my grandma's' house..and I tried to go online for once...AND IT WORKED!..thing is..she has no sort of internet hookup..so that means that I'm freeloading off someones wireless network..even though the connection strengh is "very low"...I'm still here and posting...

I just found this funny.

Is your grandmother near a Starbucks or some other wifi hotspot?  If so, you're not a thief.

My new laptop also has a built in card.  It was interesting to me how many wireless internet set-ups are near mine...my laptop picked up 5 different wireless internet set-ups!

yup..no wifi hotspot.... ..I consider it "borrowing" , lol....  ...just never do know who has a wireless router and dosen't have a firewall..or a password..neat thing..I have their I address from this..so if I wanted I could do a simple port scan of the IP address to see what port are open, telnet into their computer and reformat their hard drive(s)..of course that could mess up the connection I have now..so I won't....
