Early this morning I got call from the owner of my local pub, an acquaintance of mine. They got WiFi for customer use last week, since Wednesday customers have been complaining they have no access to net. HotSpot is asking credentials though it should be open to everyone.

I met the owner an hour before opening and went to see the system. It's done with a N1 router, a dedicated 16 meg line not in any way connected to their office system. I asked the credentials to the router and was told username is admin, password is 1234567890!

Of course these credentials did not work! Only logical explanation is some geek had found his way to the router setup web interface, put an encryption and changed setup credential. I did a full reset and now it is a little bit more difficult to enter router setup.

My point: It never stops amazing me how careless people are when it comes to networks and protection! User: admin, password: 1234567890! How stupid is that!

No, the polar opposite in fact. I'm just emotionally drained from it all.
I hope everything turns out all right.

I have to confess: once I did something to my neighbor's router. It was annoying me I was picking it, since it had no security at all (no setup password, nothing). I would connect to it at a very slow speed. I think I even changed it to manual connection, but for some reason it was still causing trouble (it was a while ago).

I went in and changed the router's name to "please enable security" or something like that. I left it open, I didn't want to actually cause trouble. I never received it again.... I probably did them a favor.

I just hope my neighbor is not a SF member....

I'm having a "girl" friend over to cook me dinner tonight, and she said she was going to bring one of her girl friends over. But her friend canceled, and she decided she would bring her new possible boyfriend instead. I've called people to see if they would come over, but they all are too busy tonight. I'm about to be a third wheel in my own apartment. FML :P
