im just curious but how do you exactly connect with someone else's router e.g i have a PC card wireless and i take it to another city(location) and use it on my laptop and if i find a network name(SSID) would i be able to connect to their router and anonymously use the internet??? please can i have info on how to . thanks
If you have your laptop WiFi card enabled and the 'other network' isn't encrypted you will automatically connect provided you have set your options to 'connect to any network' and 'automatically connect to non-prefered networks'. It really is that simple. Just open your browser having set 'Never dial aconnection' and you are on the Internet.
If you haven't set 'automatically connect to any non-prefered network' then XP will pop up a dialogue box offering you the option to connect.
You can achieve this also by clicking on 'view available wireless networks'.
It's illegal to connect to a network without the owners permission. Don't do it. Have you ever heard of Evil Twins?
dms05 wont i have to figure out their IP address or something?. I have not got Wi-Fi but i only have a wireless pc card for my home router (both Netgear make). i had problems something got to do with the ip address when i first bought it, so wouldnt it be a problem with anohter persons router???
