Single Status Update
never done it until this weekend.
basicly it is taking a laptop, or PDA and listening for wireless networks.
i did this going up and coming back from my grandparents home. too bad i dont have a gps.
things i learned
about 75% of these networks were not encrypted.
channels 6 and 11 are the most popular.
83% of them used default SSID's
netgear was the most popular, fallowed by linksys, cisco and PCX500. D-link and microsoft were rare.
the most popular speed was 11mbps and 22mbps. very few 54g and no detected 108g connections.
one guy had his address as the SSID
one guy must really like M.C. Hammer. with the SSID of "hammertime"

in the list a guy had his address as the SSID.
had the aprtment building and apt number. i guess he wants friends.
I did it just to see how easy/hard it was. we were on the highway 70% of the time and the rest was, for the most part, small country towns.
only a few larger ones like englewood, Lima, findlay, fostoria and freemont. all ohio cities
