Lately, we've been reading

Lately, we've been reading about "war driving" (more at The Register) and other methods of finding unsecured wireless networks. It's interesting to us for two reasons:

  1. We have a wireless network card in our laptop;
  2. Japan uses the same wireless standard as the US, but different channels.

So we wondered if our US-sourced wireless equipment would find Japanese wireless networks. Last night, we had dinner at a British pub near Tod's office and tested it out. The pub is next door to an Internet cafe, and sure enough we found not one, but three unsecured wireless networks.
