    Well, there it is... currently legislated at a state level and at least in some states accessing a network is not legal.

    Like I said three pages back, wardriving isn't illegal. It's when you connect. Maybe they should change it to is connecting legal. I just want to see what the armchair lawyer says.

    what people can't see won't hurt them.. remember a good hacker gets in, snoops around and leaves without changing anything. An evil one will login and change the router password

    Exclamation It's illegal

    I was a cop in Conecticut, and now work in Florida. I can tell you that in both states, it is illegal.
    This if from the current Florida State statutes:

    I know most other states have similar statutes. However in today's day and age, we are swamped with fraud, and have little time to worry about people tapping in to unsecured wifi networks.

    And before I get negative emails from everyone, I am NOT a traffic cop, I do internet fraud investigations - ebay scams and such. I hate motors cops and speeding tickets too.

    Barry, I understand the distinction you are making. Detecting the signal... no real issue.

    But Connecting with out permission is not OK. Does not matter is you have an impact or leave no changes. Checking email or directions is connecting.

    If the intent of the connection is for the benefit of customers (starbucks and others) probably no big deal either.

    This is not the case for other wireless connections residential or business.

    Have you ever heard of anyone being convicted, or even prosecuted under that law for connecting? I tend to think that law is more of an anti hacking statute. Leave the host system/computer alone and you will be fine, even if you are surfing the web, checking e-mail, whatever. Also, do you know where in the statute they define the various terms such as computer system, network etc...

    As for the AK law, that is a lot of stuff to dissect, and I have little time. But again, I ask the same questions, any convictions, prosecution? I tend to think it is an ANTI HACKING statute, that would not be applied to taking some bandwisth.

    There is a reason why "The sheriff's office and prosecutors are now reviewing the case." Cause this probably isn't theft of services (can you steal something that is free), and there are no other laws that he broke.

    I can almost assure you he won't bve tried or convicted for the theft of services.
