Wireless

#1
Help, my brother has locked down his wireless and I'm having to resort to unsecured connections but I'm on the limit of their range.

Any tips on improvement? Read somewhere about people creating wide area links with standard wireless kit (I think theirs one from Leeds to Wakefield at the top of my street).

Would it just be a dustbin lid behind my laptop??

What you need to do is move your laptop to the kitchen and place it on top of the thing that heats up your pizzas, than you will have a microwave connection, sorted!

Why not buy a USB Modemthere only about £40 or free if you sign up with all the mobile phone cos.

get an airlive 5460v2 ap as a repeater/rebroadcaster

drive up and down the street till you can use someone elses, or plug the sky dish in the back :wink:

get netstumbler from the net a free download, check what channel they are using, the ones closer may be masking his packets etc

get him to change the channel in the router and go for distance as opposed to quality.

else piggy back the free ones - like me

Its weird, their are no free ones near my house but loads in my hometown and most of the connections near my home are from people from the same hometown area as me...... maybe the North -> South migrations a myth

Is piggybacking and stealing internet not technically theft ???
Technically and legally yes. People have already been convicted.

The Communications Act 2003 also the Computer Misuse Act 1990 should cover most offences :)
