Forwarded from: Kurt Seifried <listuserat_private> Actually when I did a quick wardrive of Edmonton I hit my first wireless LAN <2 minutes from starting (but it was wep enabled, which was good), unfortunately I found more like 75-80% were completely insecure, and the coolest thing is I was able to get a few hits on downtown 802.11 access points from across the river valley (so line of sight, but a good mile or so). I also tried "wardriving" just leaving my laptop in connect mode, i.e. not running netstumbler/etc, it connected succesfully to wlan AP's a dozen time or so while I was driving around (just need to convince more people to buy AP's so we can have free mobile inet =). Driving up and down calgary trail quickly also resulted in mass amounts of insecure wlans. Reminds me of driving home from calgary, I was bored so turned the laptop on, while doing 120 kph I was able to pick up two dozen wlan on highway 2 just coming out of calgary (didn't expect that).
