Think of it as the 21st century version of train spotting.

First you will need a copy of NetStumbler software;
www.netstumbler.com
www.netstumbler.org

To keep track of your Stumble, you can record them here;

If you are using GPS you can plot your Stumbles using;

Please respect the WarDrives code and do not connect to other peoples networks.

I've got a couple of Live Linux Discs with wardriving stuff built in!

And with my new kit, I can WEP crack.

Look out neighbours :twisted:

Linux users may be interested in Airsnort or Kismet (for educational use only of course).

Bear in mind that connecting to other people's wireless networks might land you in hot water, particularly if you break their WEP key. Far easier and safer to use PlusNet wireless broadband!

Not necesscarily and probably even unlikely. Recent WEP implementations are pretty good unlike the first ones which, amongst many other problems, sent out large numbers of packets with weak initialisation vectors.

Well you could try brute forcing it... your success at this may depend on how much time there is left in the universe by the time you finish.

I start up a topic about something completely with no relevance to money, and someone from plusnet decides to sneak in a little advert.

Sneaky


It wasn't intended to be an advert, nor did it have anything to do with money. I was suggesting that driving around randomly, hoping to stumble across an unsecured access point wasn't necessarily the best way of getting wireless Internet access on the move.
