Hey there and thanks for the help. I have a mac with a built-in wireless card. I live in an apartment building, so sometimes I'll use it to go on to a local wi-fi network. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Is there anything I can get to increase the range of my card so that I can more reliably piggy back on unsecured networks? Thanks again!

I don't think anyone wants to help you with illegally piggybacking on someone else's network.

like g33kgirl was saying I agree with her,I wouldn't steal others networks.

I'm guessing maybe the apartment offer wireless?

If it does you can:

A.Move closer to the main office.

If they do not offer it, you could buy DSL and buy a router and set your on network in your apartment. Which is what I would recommend.
