    ethical? bullsht. if someone leaves a connection open i'll use it all day.
    if they dont like it they can do the massive amount of work and put a wpa code on it. ridiculous. use any connection you can ,just have a vpn to
    protect yourself.

    I would strongly recommend totally ignoring the post by antion9876 as it is total crap!

    It has no concept of morals or ethics, let alone law

    Hey, I have two gardens at the front of my house............... there are flowers in there........... can you just come in and help yourself?



    EDIT: For those who have not worked it out, the old "Antipoints" is that little weigh scale down the bottom left............... and us moderators can see all

    Thank you nihil, reading that just made my blood boil. I could post half a page of disparaging comments, but he probably isn't worth the effort. Worst of all, he sounds positively proud of it!

    Back onto the subject of using the wireless: I have a lot of the customers I work with on a day to day basis that could really use the knowledge provided in the help menus about securing their connections or some of you fine guys and girls to help them out. I do aDSL and about 1/3rd of the people I visit that have wireless routers never do anything to secure them. That means no passwords, no mac filtering, not to mention wpa or wep. I encourage them, as soon as I see that, to change it to at least be their tel #.

    It's an easy fix when I receive a repair ticket at a set of apartments or a dorm where the complaint is slow speeds and the customer has wifi'd the entire 3rd floor. I know just adding a password or wep doesn't secure it enough, but it will keep the average user from leeching.

    I was at a local community college about a month ago where my customer had reported extremely slow speeds for having 6meg dsl. When I showed up, the problem was obvious. I enabled the security and made him happy. But when I was leaving 2 people from the dorm below him came out and asked what I had done to their free internet they where getting. my response was that if you want to use that wireless signal your were getting try splitting the bill with the guy upstairs and he might let you back on..... They were not happy with that answer hehe.. Ok, I'll shut up and get back to work.

    Good day to all

    LOL Boogymantroy! Careful or I might find that icon to click (joke, your posts always have something relevant to say).

    Actually I think I see what you mean, but I thought that was just for giving good feedback.

    Is this some kind of site run by nuns? Is this the born again, lilly white, church goers' security site?
    What a joke.
    If you don't want someone on your signal then put a password on it.

    End of story.
