apparently some guys are selling their canopy, AFAIK we could set up our own canopy to connect at basestation w/o the smartbro tech's help! still gathering information about this... i have yet to contact the tech that i was mentioning about on the other forum topic:

if this is possible, this is a major drawback for smart

interesting.

here's a definition of WEP or Wired Equivalent Privacy

from http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wirelesssecurity/g/bldef_wep.htm

"Definition: WEP is a protocol that adds security to wireless local area networks (WLANs) based on the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard. WEP is an OSI Data Link layer (Layer 2) security technology that can be turned "on" or "off." WEP was designed to give wireless networks the equivalent level of privacy protection as a comparable wired network.

WEP is based on a security scheme called RC4 that utilizes a combination of secret user keys and system-generated values. The original implementations of WEP supported so-called 40-bit encryption, having a key of length 40 bits and 24 additional bits of system-generated data (64 bits total). Research has shown that 40-bit WEP encryption is too easy to decode, and consequently product vendors today employ 128-bit encryption (having a key length of 104 bits, not 128 bits) or better (including 152-bit and 256-bit WEP systems).

When communicating over the wire, wireless network equipment uses WEP keys to encrypt the data stream. The keys themselves are not sent over the network but rather are generally stored on the wireless adapter or in the Windows Registry.

Regardless of how it is implemented on a wireless LAN, WEP represents just one element of an overall WLAN security strategy."

yes. advanced users can "intercept and modify".

take a look at this

"A research group from the University of California at Berkeley recently published a report citing "major security flaws" in WEP that left WLANs using the protocol vulnerable to attacks (called wireless equivalent privacy attacks). In the course of the group's examination of the technology, they were able to intercept and modify transmissions and gain access to restricted networks."

Do you mean we'll need to be a "hacker" first if you really want to access the smartbro internet illegally?hmmm maybe you'll get jailed if you're caught. :angry:

if you have an extra canopy already well i think its up to you on how you will hide it or if you canceled your bro connection and availed the other one that has no monthly bills then theres a less chance that they would inspect your connection for you have already terminated your contract with them, but if you have many neighbors using the bro then you have a high chance of being detected that you have an extra connection coz they might report you..

just a word of advice:

KIDS don't try this at home!  :evil:

Oh really? But They can monitor the legitimate number of subscribers from the illegal connections. And they can easily trace your location, since the canopy has a built in GPS where they can trace your distance to the base station...Have u already tried doing this thing?
