    Using the public band isn't the legal issue. It's stomping on small shops that use Wi-Fi gear in their offices. Our monster lightup gear would stomp their signal rendering their computer assets as paper weights.

    Ah, plus I think you have mentioned you work for the government horse. That always brings issues of frequency problems.

    I noticed something over the last few days. Most of the cafe style restaurants and coffee shops have free wireless now. Even the one's who used to be "T Mobile Hotspots" Well at least here where I live. It is interesting because perhaps eventually every one will have one, just like they don't blink an eye at having credit card card reader, standard install of point of sale systems. The existing one's are off the POS network anyway. Heck I was in the pub the other night and could access a cafe gatway half a block away.

    A legitimate wireless network sets up.
    Along comes a not so legit set up and they set up their network to match the first / legit one [pay attention at the back] Now customers of the legit can be 'fooled' into logging onto the EVIL TWIN ...............Phishing comes of age

    All I needed was the VCR running, and I would have had my very own "How to Hack" movie.
    Don't know an easier way of linking the threads. But felt it was relevant to this one too.

    I always thought that Philly was a hot spot because cdkj lived there! Dang, guess that makes it a _real_ hot spot!?!?!

    I don't think I want to be one of the contractors on this one. I'm running low on years and headache medicine over here. Lessee 135 square miles -- BTW cdkj, what's the population of Phila now? -- hmmm ...

    <calculate - calculate>

    Yeah, I don't think the estimated budget is gonna get it done, might have to throw a few more nickles in the bucket.
