  • Wardriving :)

    First time today, got about 10 hotspots pinged down and added to GPS points of interest.
    Me and my buddy had laptops, I had Dell Axim X5 for GPS and my carputer system for music.
    Laptops were connected to an inverter.
    Sorry for the crappy pics, sending them from a hotspot right now.
    Will post more when I get home with a better camera.









    Sorry for the quality.

    Wardriving rules!!

    Yeah, I've got some sweet shots, but they are on my friend's camera. We've hit about 20 different hotspots, one right near Starbucks, with a big parking lot, haha! Now I only need to find a few next to my college and work. Oh wait.. I got fired today!! Haha! Seriously though, that job sucked.

      How long have you been wardriving? 20 hotspots is nothing. Are you using netstumbler, or are you just relying on Windows to do it for you?

      I think I may have something like 600 or so in my area alone. And that's nothing!

          I was on my laptop in my car, and windows automatically connected to the strongest network. Which wasn't mine, in my driveway apparently. So I'm browinsg the web for a few minutes, and I go to get some music from my desktop. Well, looksy here, I'm on someone else's hd, on there network! I almost peed myself I disconnected to quick. then I loaded netstumbler, and went for a drive. On a 1/4 mile drive to my GF's, I hot 15 hotspots. Including an open network with at the police department!

              Well, it can't be a trap - my local PD is complete dumb-@$$es.

              One time a cop came to my house to get a report from us. He had a palm pilot. It froze. He said - "Oh no - i gotta let the batteries run down so it can restart." and seriusly just sat it on the table. IDIOT!

                  20 spots are only those that had good parking and were valuable enough to be put into the GPS database. Otherwise there've been at least 300 spots that we came across.
                  Here are the shots:


                  /\that's not me









                  Basically all we had were two laptops equipped with PCMCIA wifi cards. No antennas or amps (unless you count the 1600watt audio ). My friend's wifi card was better at picking up signal. We used WINC, and TomTom GPS for adding hotspots to POI database. The red screen in the middle is my carputer system, the one that plays my music. I really need to post updated shots of my setup soon..

                      Mine goes on the back seat
                      I usually leave it home, but now that I've got the hotspots identified, I'll tag it along in case I feel like checking my email or something

                            Your pictures suck. Whats on top of your gauge cluster??? also, driving around with all those bright screens on and no window tinting is gonna get you pulled over. Make sure you encrypt anything you steal

                              LoL.....those pictures are hilarious. Instead of being called dorks for the carputer - you guys take it one step further by bringing more than one laptop.

                              I think everyone in this thread has said it in a nice way that you are some wardriving rookies...haha.

                              Do the pcmcia cards you are using even have external antenna jacks - I'll bet not
                              I'll be impressed when I see a Pringles cantenna or crazy Yagi setup.

                              Hey, I'm just messing/teasing you guys. I have a carputer and still bring a laptop every once in a while. That's really cool tho, I remember when I first got into wardriving. It gets little scary when u get on someone else's machine, and they counter-hack your ***. Not cool. Just be safe with it, and s'all good.

                              So for the obvious question - why the hell are u using a laptop to do it - when u have a carputer already in your car???
