    Question: can I use Airport Express to enhance the signal of a wireless PC hub that isn't mine?

    If you haven't guessed already, I'm talking about my neighbors who have a non-password protected wireless network. I understand the questionable morality of this (is it illegal?).

    Thanks,

    -Nate

    I don't think you can do this without also reconfiguring their hub. I would guess (and hope) that you'll have a harder time justifying that action, since it'd be actively stealing rather than passively stealing. :D

    Ha! I suppose you're right:

    me: "Excuse me, ma'am? I'm your neighbor. I just need to fiddle around with some electronics in here. Okay, there it is. Can I get some more light?"
