Some jerk trying to do something to our internet.
Now unfortunately I wasn't there so im only going on what my boss has told me happened, and he know nothing about computers. We have a little shop. With a really old computer system. 3 pc all win xp. an old wifi router. Our software is old so this is a "not broke, no need to replace, till and customer data base system"
Any way some bloke comes in and says he's moved into the apartments over the street and cant get the internet there. Wants to know if he can pay us to use ours. wanted to look at the router. Now I don't know if he got a look at it. Or a look at out pc's. im guessing he used his phone to scan for wifi networks. (how else would he know we have one) coz it is old I think it only has WEP security and the password is written on it.
Now I know that these apartments can have internet coz a while ago I looked into buying one. Also the router is so old and shit it doesn't even reach the upstarts office threw the floor, let alone the apartments about 100m away. Also there is a bar closer to him that has free wifi. So this is making me thing this guys plans are more nefarious.
Think he's trying to get the WEP password out of my boss so he can get a look at computers. But for what reason I cant work out.
Now I know WEP is supposed to be easy to crack if you have some know how and some equipment.
So anything I can do that is not going to cost any money to stop this guy, and any way of telling if and what this guy is trying to do.
Any ideas and suggestions welcome
