    i was at the airport and i noticed my wireless card picked up a signal. when i opened up my browser it asked me to log in, bleh, they want you to pay. another guy sitting next to me started talking to me about how you can get around it, all logging in does is foward you to another address or something? anybody have any idea what he was talking about?

    umm.... the point that balzz was trying to make was that. well. there was no point.

    If you are talking about requiring to log in to surf the web. They were using a proxy server. You arent hacking the wireless net, you are hacking the server that regulates the traffic on your connection. Big Difference

    Agreed.

    You aren't going to sniff the air, but instead the stream from the proxy.
