    Well, he deserved it. And a couple of weeks before they had kept the whole street up with loud music from their party that went on until 3am....

    The problem for him was that I don't think he knew how to change his own settings. I bumped into his wife a few days later who said that he'd had a mate round who told him the problem he was having was because someone nearby was using the same channel as he was and that he should get them to change it! On yer bike pal.

    Guess they probably used netstumbler or something to see what was going on in their area. Don't why they just didn't change their channel - numpties.

    They might of had an ISP supplied AP/Router (eg, from Sky) that they had no access to.
