      I think this could be quite enlightening as to how ignorant people are about the need to ensure their wireless networks are secure.

      Re: Unsecured Wireless Networks

      3 for me, though 2 are very low so doubt I'd connect.

      Also got 4 WEP and 2 WPA ones, so 7 that I'd probably be able to get on if I tried hard enough and 2 that its a waste of time to try.

      I can only pick up two, one is fine and the other must be my neighbours. Both are secured.

      Two for me. 1 secured and 1 not. Good signal strength, easy to connect to and read my e mails.
