snowball: The network to the right with 4 bars is my network, the network I would usually automatically connect to.


And now the GCSB, Google and anyone else with a SSID->geolocation database know exactly where you live.

As everyone else said, just someone being funny, and as for it connecting, probably because its an open network and it was the first one the Xbox saw.

 

Edit : Take that back about being open...looks locked down. So I'd say someone has either renamed your own wifi SSID, or someone connected you to another one.

Zeon: I once saw a police undercover van drive past with flashing lights. High sided dark blue van with tinted windows and a ladder on top for cliche value - no one would ever guess.

Like this one?

You don't live next door to the Gisborne City Sanitation Board do you?

I thought GCSB vans had Mr Whippy written on them, it would be a good way of looking legit and making money while working.

well it depends whether you have a master filter installed. a master filter allows the GCSB to tap your line.

Why would GSCB bother with vans if they can sniff your traffic from the provider end point?

I'd just like to say that wasn't me commenting before about GCSB vans it was Chinese hackers. I don't know anything; I can't even spell GCSB.

Bummer, my night job has been found out!





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

GOTCHA! That's why you are always offering to put in 'master filters' in everyone's homes for a discounted rate... AND why any suggestion by you that my rats-nest of phone extension cords has anything to do with the speed of my internets can now be safely discounted and laid squarely at Chorus' door!!
