    Can't afford broadband? Outwith a compatible exchange? Want to save yourself a fortune on Wireless networking? Get yourself some Pedigree Chum! :D

    I think it's okay... Just so long as he has permission from his company, as it is their network he's using! Would save a few quid too! ;)

    But imagine how much better it would be if he used something other than a dog food can for an antenna, something he would actually have to purchase. Pretty silly to me, but hey, its working.

    D :D

    Cool, but how the f?ck does it work!? Tell us how it's connected what it's connected to, how does it send the signal, is something set up in that one neighbor's house? Does that nieghbor now have a mountain of dog food cans in his yard or something?

    Good story, bad reporting.
