I see what you mean - that you might be involved in legitimate security testing, just I get so many "help me hack my neighbour's wifi" emails in here, and outside of here, I just read yours and thought "Not another one", when you didn't actually say why you were doing it. Sorry for jumping to conclusions on that.

I'm just already annoyed at the fact that whenever I say wardriving, I usually get asked "That's illegal, isn't it?".

You're right, I'd rather have called it piggybacking+. Now, whether this is
illegal or not, is something different. You don't know WHY I'm doing what
I'm doing. If it is because my neighbor asked me to check his Wi-Fi
installation it's certainly not illegal - I guess. If I hack his network and
sniff around his files I would be violating several laws at once.

Good reference at
