ok, just moved into an apartment. The cable company here doesnt offer broadband, and i dont want to get the phone line connected just for DSL, since i mainly use my cell phone anyway. A few of the neighbors have wireless networks, and I want to "borrow" their connection till the end of july when the apartment complex moves to Comcast cable and i can get broadband from them.
If I use netStumbler, i can see 5 different networks, but i cant figure out how to get on them.
I tried using airsnort, but my network card isnt supported and i dont want to have to go buy a new one.
How can I go about gaining access. I dont want to use up all their bandwidth, i just wnat to be able to check and send email, and look up sports scores and stuff.
Are there any other good tools out there?
Would I be able to use ethereal to figure out the passwords to get on the network?
