Default neighbors wireless connection unsecured.....

Basically, I just got new neighbors and they are gay and have a wireless network that is unsecured. I connected to it (linksys) with admin admin and I dont really want to ruin them, but I would just like you guys to tell me some things that I could do being connected to their network. Any suggestions?

Just use a network packet sniffer.....such as Ethereal.Then you see what goes in and out of their network...passwords, email address, etc.

There network is wide open and they are pretty much just asking for someone to snoop on them. I bet if you got pulled into court for it, you could get off way easy because its brodcasting to everyone and anyone could access there data. SO yeah.....I think that makes sense.

wouldnt a packet sniffer take a while since its a home network and they dont generate a lot of packets?

Yes, but if you know that they are on the computer, then you would get mostly TCP packets. But say if they worked from home....like say they work for IB[]\/[] or Micro$oft. Then there would be alot of traffic on the network. If they dont then you'll only get the TCP and the occasional UDP.

For a start if your in a built up area I'd secure the router for your and them only, You'd need to find the MAC addresses of their systems and then restict acces to those and yours only, this way they wont notice a diffrence and you'll have exclusive access to the router (besides them).

Dont use WEP or WPA because you'll get busted right away

After that I'd leech their bandwith and save your cash. (as long as its a reliable connection)


EDIT: Sorry, didn't notice how old it was.
