Can I use this wireless network?

  Earthsea 18:15 16 Jul 2007

My laptop detects an unsecured wireless network where I live but I don't know where it's coming from. There are no hotspots where I am (I've checked) so can anyone tell me its probable source and whether or not I'm allowed to use it? I can connect to it easily and it works fine.

It's called 'Belkin54g' and the speed varies between 54 Mbps and 1 or 2 Mbps, often settling at 5.5 Mbps. It's configured for open access.

I live near an industrial estate with a very large (and famous) factory. Could this be the source?

I'm new to this wireless thing as you can probably tell!
