The whole wireless security scene has been old news for a while now but here is a bit of a spin on the idea. The Wifi Predator is a directional antenna to receive wif-fi signals from much longer distances than your standard laptop wifi antenna can pick up. Here’s the spin : There are hundreds of unprotected wifi connections from neighbors or coffee shops that you could use for “free intenet” access. The antenna is big and sort of pain if it is conected to you laptop directly. Instead mount the antenna to a tripod, connect it to a wireless router and use the router as your repeater. Point the Predator at the hotspot and you got yourself a free wifi connection from quite a distance away. I will definitely try this one out.
