Hacking wifi router might already sound familiar to you guys , especially if you’ve already read my previous post about Router bruteforce. Or you can also check the most complete Router default passwords list to begin hacking wifi router 2009. In this post I will review some excerpts from other blogs related to wifi router hacking how to experiences. This post contains various experiences in hacking wifi router 2009 , hacking wireless router, steal wifi,hack wifi , hacking secure wireless router , and so on.
The first experience is written by Paul Boutin , He describes how to steal his neighbour’s Wi-fi , and here’s the short excerpt from the blog :
If you want to find a Wi-Fi network, don’t start by looking on the sidewalk for chalk marks. “Warchalking,” a technique for writing symbols in public places to alert neighbors to nearby wireless access points, is a cool concept that’s been undermined by the fact that no one has ever used it. The best method to find some free wireless is to treat your laptop like a cell phone. Since Wi-Fi and cell phone signals travel on a similar radio frequency, the same tricks you use for getting a better phone connection might work on your computer. Sit near a window, since Wi-Fi signals travel better through glass than through solid walls. Stay away from metal objects. Pay close attention to your laptop’s orientation—rotating your machine just a few degrees could help you pick up a network that you couldn’t see before. Raise your laptop over your head, put it flat on the floor, tilt it sideways while leaning halfway out the window—get out the divining rod if you have to. You might get a reputation for being some sick laptop yoga freak, but isn’t free Internet worth it?

The second experience is published on George gardner , here’s the excerpt :
My wireless network was powered by a Linksys WRT54G v6 wireless router; It is well known that this model is the most widely used wireless router. Out of the box, the Linksys router came with 1 CD which was nothing more than a visual step by step, what you should do to connect it.
A few things concern me with this router. There was no part in the setup that allowed me, or even told me to change my router’s default password. To change the password, I had to go into the router’s web-based setup utility; this was accessible via the IP address 192.168.1.1 in my Internet browser. The default username and password was admin. If someone was able to compromise the security on my network, they could have easily done this for me; and locked me out of my own network. Sure, I could have performed a hard reset on the router, but I’d have little luck without the Internet or any documentation to help.
If you’re looking to find your default username and password, there is quite a comprehensive list located at www.phenoelit.de My advice is to change this immediately, for it may save you some trouble down the road.
Being my first time, I decided to go easy; I set my router up with a basic WEP 64 encryption; it required a 10 digit hex key. I entered the key into the 2 other computers in my home, and I was ready to start. Read the rest on http://tech.blorge.com/Structure:%20/2007/02/06/i-hacked-my-wireless-network/
And the last experience is a how to from Hack-a-day blog , which is titled greyhat wifi repeater :
This how-to gives the steps needed to put together a simple man-in-the-middle wireless repeater. You can use this to hang your wired network off of someone else’s wireless router and serve their wireless connection back to them. Do not do this. It here as a silly geek trick and will probably just annoy you every time your connection goes down because you’re too cheap to pay for a good wired connection.
This involves three wireless routers:
Your neighbor is in possession of router A. It is set to factory defaults initially. This is important because it shows the victim isn’t technically savvy and won’t notice your intrusion. You have router B, a Linksys WRT54G that you will be putting into client mode and connecting to router A. The final component, router C, is plugged into router B and acts as a wireless access point.
