Thread: Leeching Internet?

  1. #1
    Anyone do this? I'm on a dialup modem. I borrowed a laptop and took it home, and was able to connect without using a phone jack dial up stuff.

    I'm guessing this is because of the wireless card? So right now, I'm leeching off this high speed connection. How can I do this with a home pc?

    WIth a desktop pc you probably need to install a wireless pci card.

    would the owners of the connection be able to find out what websites I've visited?

    man, this is risky. I want to dl pron, as I finally have a good connection for the time being. I'm guessing this person doesn't have a URL grabber since I've been using the connection for a while playing online games and watching movie trailers.

    Is it illegal to do this, leeching?

    unauthorized access to a computer network is a third-degree felony.

    ay, I guess I won't do it for my pc. I'll just use it for the laptop since it's only for a day or two now. Thanks Ike
