    And as someone once mentioned, "if it's there, you gotta share". Well, not surprisingly it's WEP locked. Is the effort required in cracking this worth it or should I just forget about it? I wonder how much trouble I will incur if I use his internets for bittorrent? Best to just use it as a back up wifi for DS online.

    Depends on your wireless card if you can crrack it or not. If it's some Broadcom BS you're SOL.

    I have a Macbook, and you can do it with Linux+MacBook+Patched MadWIFI drivers and the Atheros card wich is already inside [​IMG] I already did it a few times.

    I read a while back that there was one of those Linux Live Boot CDs that could do the job. You boot off the disc, not needing to install it on the HDD, steal the key and your done. Forgot what it's called though - anyone remember? Should only need to be around 50mb or so.

    you can do it in windows, just a lot more intensive and still require the atheros card. maybe try reading up on WEP encryption concepts and what you are actually doing before you start, makes it a lot easier.

    Nice find Kyoji, unfortunatly my wifi card is not supported, I may run out and get one that is. Here is a question though. I have 5 unsecure networks and 8 secure networks in my office. I am assuming the stores above, below, and beside me?....maybe even across from me. We have been stealing off the 5 unsecures...but even though they are unsecure still I can't connect anymore....I thought my wireless card was going bad but my DS can't connect anymore either....is it possible they are blocking my mac address?

    My Wi-Fi connection is WEP protected, has MAC protection on and doesn't broadcast the SSID. I still think it could be hacked though [​IMG] I have a lot of protection on because I don't want anyone else to use my wifi connection. I don't see why anyone should get free internet or even be able to download from something like the Bittorrent network. At the end of the day if their caught its you that gets the letter.

    It's possible, but they would be more likely to be using MAC filtering. That basically only allows a predefined list of MAC addresses to connect to the AP. If that is the case, and if you are using linux, there are easy ways to spoof your MAC address to look like one of theirs, or a random one, if they are only blocking yours.
