  • war driving, free phone calls from the car?

    I dont know everything about this war driving stuff I have heard BUT I got a really cool idea if it is what i think it is..... Is it basicly you got some hardware hooked to your computer and you drive around looking for a wireless connection to the net... and your basicly connected on somebody elses connection..... I got my idea when I was installing a web browser and did custom install and saw the internet phone call thing.... so I was wondering if anyone on here has ever made phone calls through there computer by connecting to a connection while driving around. Is this a good idea? has it been done?

      people like u give the real war drivers a bad rep, we don't get on a person's network unless we have permission, we just see that they exist and sometimes inform business of security holes.

          What about open/free networks? Any problems with those?

            ok sounds like a bad idea then.... sorry i totally did no reading on the subject... but the last post says something about publix networks... what are those? and how can you tell the difference between a public and a private network cause sounds like public networks are legal to do that sort of thing... I dont like it where it said people like me give real war drivers bad rep.... I dont even have a carputer in my car yet.... the reason I posted what i did was to see if it was a bad idea or good idea... now i know its obviously a bad one . this public networks thing sounds cool though... k

                Exactly. The only public, free waps would probably be noted. Also, driving around, you're only in range of a any given wap for a few seconds, unless you're sitting in their parking lot. And, as was noted, wardriving isnt really for tracking down waps and hacking into them, its just seeing whats out there.
