I would suggest asking them if it's OK to use their wifi. It's better to be up front about it than to get caught using it without permission.

Ya I'll probably end up asking just to make sure its alright. I doubt they will have a problem with it. I just wasn't sure if they'll be able to see the sites I've went to or log my user info.

middair packet sniffing is unlikely, but wouldn't be impossible, antennas can be promiscuous just like network cards.

what sites he's on? if the packets are going from their wireless access point, through their network to their gateway they can look at those packets along the way at any point.


though you have to think about whether they would want to bother with this.

It's not like he is going to look at pronz and torrents on his cellphone haha. I highly doubt anyone would care since the connections are in fact public.

Ya for sure I wouldn't get anything less. But the company's internet is still faster than the 3g Network of AT&T. I'm downloading around 500kB/s on my phone at work lol. Unlimited data only costs me $30 a month.
