Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

The whole system breaks down because....
if people have their network named what it is out of the box....for example...."LINKSYS"....lets say that is their SSID and they don't secure it. Now, lets say I have my computer configured to "automatically connect" to the LINKSYS SSID. Well, if I move next door to a place that has that access point running and my computer automatically connects, how is anyone at fault except the equipment manufacturers?
At my apartment complex, there are 4 access points within my range that are named LINKSYS. 3 of them unsecured. There are 3 named BELKIN54G, 1 unsecured, and a few unsecured APPLE_NETWORK access points. I am unaware of what the piggy-backing law is, but it seems this all boils down to the people making the equipment. If a secured network is the only way around this...then there should be none sold without some sort of automatic encryption wizard to run when you first start the router or whatever. (I am ranting, sorry.)
