I have $600 in the Elite pack from WifiRanger and $400 in the cell booster. Plus installation time/cost by an RV service center.

And from the other lines of past connections, does this mean that you've actually piggy-backed off of other user's WiFiRangers, too??

And imagine poor Charlie of Charlie's Coffee Shop, who is paying a $100/mo for DSL in order to offer HER PAYING CUSTOMERS a few minutes of WiFi - not knowing that her Data Package is being chewed up by someone at an RV Park 1.5mi down the road is sitting in his RV making his Work Income off of her.

At what point does this become THEFT??

Each line on that screen is a WiFi network that you can currently see with your hardware; not what you've connected to in the past.

Also, all of those that have wpa would need a password to get in. Looks you you could only connect to a couple anyway.

Seems like if you have / offer wi-fi that is not protected - you are letting anyone use it. If you are worried about it being used / stolen (used without permission) - protect it.

Unfortunately, you are basically Correct. But that doesn't make it Right...

I'd hate to do my Camping around folks that took that same attitude to the rest of the Campground - walking off with your Chairs and Power Cords and Stinky Slinkies just because you hadn't Locked them.

Creativepart and Ependydad,
Curious on what kind of bandwidth are you getting? Especially when picking up WIFI signals. Have you tested that?

The image I posted is from Wifi Ranger. It's not from my computer.

Open networks are just that - OPEN. Hence the name.

It's not a moral issue or theft. It's not "real property" like your "lawn chairs."

Of course, you can look at it any way you wish.
