Warchalking in the Hinterlands?


So, I'm in the process of 'wireless-izing' our Parish, and I drove over to the Church tonight to see if I could get Signal everywhere I needed. Nope. Oh, well, Father probably unplugged the wireless router. We can fix that tomorrow.

So, I leave the Win2K laptop on as I drive the 10 minutes home, with the 'Site Survey' display up. Yep. You guessed it. I got curious. Kept hitting the Refresh button.

Survey Says:
  • 11 802.11b networks encountered in 2 miles of country driving
  • 6 of those totally unprotected
  • 5 WEP protected (including mine)
I'll leave it to minds greater than mine to decide What This Means in 2005, but I was startled a bit. And, no, you can't have my address.
