    Need help getting on WiFi
    Im at my grandpa's house and when he goes to sleep I will need to use my MBP,but he does not have a wireless router. He told me his neighbor has WiFi and that I can use it.Only problem is, he has it locked and when I asked my grandpa for the password he told me he forgot it. I tried calling the neighboor and being a religious day he is still not home. Anyway I can still use it? I heard Airport on Mac's was really good at still being able to get on these locked networks.

    Find a way to crack/guess the password. How are you on the internet now? Why don't you just plug your MBP into whatever you're using now?

    Are you really asking us to help you hack into someone's wireless signal? Where on earth did you hear that Macs are good at "getting into locked networks"? Didn't you already post about something questionable like that?

    We do not discuss illegal activity here including hacking and cracking.

    If you can't access a wireless network with permission directly connect to your grandfathers internet via ethernet cable or some other method.

    We do not allow discussion of getting into Wireless Networks that you do not have the right to access. If the neighbor gives you there password and says it's fine, then go for it. Otherwise it's not legal to access or hack into their network.
