    Wireless internet provider

    Total newbie here..

    I have a wireless internet provider in town here.

    I was told by a competitor that the signal is not protected in anyway, so you could pick up and use the signal for free.

    How would I go about catching this signal in home or in car?

    Thanks

    When cellmate, Big Tony asks why you're in you can say "Oh, I was stealing wireless internet access with the computer in my car."

    I'm sure that'll go over well.

    dude, why is it that when someone asks a question on how to do something or is something is possible, there is always someone that will come in and act like a damn attorney-wannabe-smartass-fbi-agent-mr.morally-right?

    I reckon that quinton asked HOW it was done/what is required - not what it is "called" or the legal crap that nobody cares about when they are just learning. Whether he or she actually does it shouldnt concern anyone here.

    Wizard: if you do not know the answer, in the future please refrain from answering a different question. Or stating the obvious. Thanks.

    ugh
