Stealing wifi internet access is definitely a way to be a leech, getting internet for free, while your poor neighbor pays for access.
Arguments for stealing internet wifi access
In the case that people leave their wifi signals open for anyone to log in, you might argue that it’s fair game, their signal crossed into your property. I’ve used this argument for the last few years, getting even free internet access in my apartment. But, if you’ll remember a case a few years ago, a guy was arrested for stealing internet from his car outside someone’s house. Ok, so it’s a bit different when some guy drive up in his car than stealing wifi from behind the comfort of you own home…
Ways to Steal Password Protected Internet Wifi
These methods are very questionable, legal wise, but still they will allow you to break through almost any password protected wifi router. Air Crack NG is one method for breaking through that password. You’ll find a guide here that will take you step by step through the process. Keep in mind that not everyone’s wireless router will be supported.
Get Wifi Internet Access Free, Legally
You don’t want to pay, and you don’t want to steal (you angel), well your next best option, coffee shops, libraries… or even malls. So it sucks leaving the comforts of home, but keep this in mind. It’s like being social while surfing the internet. I’ve often just gone to a coffee shop to do my work since I feel a lot less alone, and sometimes I even meet some cool people!
