Are you saying that you log onto someone else's network ?
Yes I am, I have the guys permission as his wife left him and he doesn't have a computer... I was going to wait till I got my own wireless router to try to hack, but he told me to give it a go as he no longer had the keys for it... Took only a few mins to get... and now he has a copy of his keys... Even offered him cash for month usage fees as he is under a contract... To date he still will not accept any cash...

Is the router secured? Are you/he using any encryption? If not, I would strongly advise it.

What kind of encryption? WEP? WPA? WPA2?

I have done more than one which is listed... It's a great tool for getting your lost keys or to help a friend get theirs... This is not a place to talk about hacking keys or phrases... Suggest a very very very strong password if using WPA or WPA2 other wise your at risk... GL If you are using one with WEP, throw that sucker in the garbage...

Hmm... I've hacked my own AP in [edit] WEP mode, less than 5 minutes... Never had any luck when it's connected to my RADIUS server+WPA2 Enterprise+AES... My easiest way would be rather than hack the air waves, I whack the reset button on the AP/router... That does it 100%, every time (Then I put a new, 32+ characters of random garbage, not even I can remember it).

Passed everything with flying colors, no A/V installed. Kinda proves that the built in Win 7 security isn't so bad after all.

It's not AV test.
There is two explanations why you have passed the test:
1. Windows Firewall is enabled
2. You are connected to Router (So it's your routers firewall which is stealthing ports)

My no-firewall-enabled-xp laptop passed the test with all green results... All thanks to my mikrotik router...
