Hot DAMN! I like technology. I'm sitting here on the couch with my laptop typing this with a cold brew and NO cables hooking me up to the internet.

With the cable modem its blazingly fast.

Even the WIFE was impressed!

lol.

Id like to do the same thing but what about security cant people use the wireless network signal to.....whatever ??? Right now my wife has her work desktop on cart and moves it back into the office at night when the baby goes to sleep and has to move a network cable with it -primarilly cause I'm to lazy to run a cat5 outlet out there but wireless would be the way to go then she could use it just about anywhere in the house.

I wired my house (EVERY room) for a LAN. They all interconnect to one face in a cubboard in my office, which connects to my router, which connects to my cable modem.

At 40 bit WEP with a very busy AccessPoint it takes about 3 Hrs to get a good enough sample to crack.
At 128 bit with same settings it takes roughly 3-4 weeks to get a usable sample.

I know because I have done it.(I'm a Net Admin in charge of security)

The Lucent Orinoco cards have a update that randomizes the Identifier so it makes cracking much harder.

So the best thing to do is run a VPN inside the WEP. If they bust the WEP who cares they still need to get past the VPN.

And Wardriving it a hoot. Not that I have done it but im told it is.....
