Yup i've stumbled most of Calgary. There are alot of access points, mostly with Wep. Did this with no antenna though so i'm sure i've missed alot.

I'm also in Calgary.

Have an Avaya Gold card with a 5Dbi gain antenna. There's tons of non-WEP point in town.

Drop me a line if you want to chat.

Edmonton...

Postby renderman » Mon Aug 12, 2002 1:31 pm

I'm in Edmonton.

I've reached over 500 AP's in the city and immediate surrounding area.

I'm curious about Calgary. Any data?

Yes quite a bit.
I've got almost the same rig as you too.
So far just have driven downtown/some of the south as I haven't had much time
up to 350 access points, of which around 60% unprotected. I have yet to drive some of the tech sections of Calgary

whoa, after not seeing any responses to this thread, I've checked back, and was pleasantly surprised.

I've found ~118 in Calgary, and ~170 in Edmonton.

Nice setup Renderman. I drive back and forth from Calgary/Edmonton twice a week, I've never tried wardriving the full route, as I don't have an external antenna, but I'm amazed at the number of networks you've found.

I've wanted to scope RedDeer for sometime now, but time... time...

Hmmm, not next week, but the week after would be good for RedDeer (mmmmmmm, university/college = wireless networks....)

(In fact, here's a project I'd love to do).

By looking at the various signal strengthes, for only non-WEP, or open AP's, I'd love to build an actual "coverage" map, instead of pin-points for the AP's, approximated network radius, and then produce an overlapping coverage map of Alberta...

Based on mulitple samples from 1 AP, taken from multiple locations, it should be possible to triangulate it's center, and then approximate it's overall radius, instead of the simple "found AP @ GPS coord" mapping we have now...

Chris from the Forum is co-ordinating a mass wardrive of the Virginia are on the 31'st. I'd be fun to have our own on the same day.

I'll email you to workout details.

This is also an open invitation to anyone in the Alberta area who wants to join in. Just mail me at [email]render [at] renderlab [dot] net[/email] and I can include you.

I recall mentat discussing something like having a "National Wardriving Week" or perhaps "International Wardriving Week" ... Would be quite interesting if we could pull together all over... :)

Well, now I see, the 31st would be: "International WarDriving Day", maybe that will get the press's attention...

Hmmm, well maybe I can make it then Render, I'm tracking down a better card/externa antenna setup right now (damn pricewatch etailers don't ship to Canada, what? our plastic is no good anymore?)
