{OT} Some Folk ..

  1. .... just fired up the WiFi config on my Mac. Two base stations visible:
    mine, and the neighbour's whom I mentioned. His base station is called
    'home'. I click on 'configure', it asks me for a password, and I enter
    'home', thinking, 'nah .. no one's _that_ clueless'.

    Some folk are. I have root access to his network.

    I always laugh when the passwords to get onto companies routers and
    firewalls are <cisco> , <cisco>

  4. Maybe I should lock the **** out of his network .. teach him a lesson, as
    it were.

    Maybe it's a trap and your Mac's just been hacked.
    If not, it would be better to suggest that he changes his password.

  7. Our neighbour has only recently gone wireless, and yes, he's used
    defaults, which was annoying as it created a channel conflict and caused
    me problems. Soon sorted that by changing the channel on his router[1],
    also noticed he's got a faster line than me, oh and 2 PCs, one of which
    is a mac. I've offered to go round and tighten up security for him but
    his wife has stopped talking to us since we had our conservatory built
    (women!), so that's probably put a stop to that.

    Nice to have a backup should my wireless die.

    [1] Linksys, so same defaults as my router had.

    No, actually even by connecting to his network, I'm risking (IIRC) five
    years in gaol. What's the equivalent of net msg or whatever, on mac ?

  9. I quite fancy setting up port routing or whatever it's called, to allow me
    to access this iBook on port 22 and continue posting, should my own LAN
    ever go tits-up. I need to restart his AirPort base station for that, and
    as I don't know what hours he keeps ..
