What you're doing is called stealing and you could go to jail. Don't be a thief and pay for your own bandwidth instead of leeching off someone else's. :/

hey! you are really funny!!! you said that I am stealing... what do you think you are doing??? :) do you think these .torrent files are PUBLIC DOMAIN? hehehehe? so lame dude...!

anyway, it sems like no one can help me now.

thanks anyway!

In some areas wireless internet access is free or it is LEGAL to share your internet connection with your neighbors.

There are obscure laws in numerous places that also says if you receive a radio signal or see something from your property that you are entitled to "read" it if you can.

Barring that, it may fall under 'theft-of-services', but that doesn't make it jail-worthy. You'd merely get fined/charged for the service. And the ones who have to prosecute is the ISP -- the careless wireless router user can only seek to disable or secure the shared services.

...unless of course the wireless router user can prove you "hacked" their computer.

...then again, it may fall under "trespass" laws to connect to someone else's wireless router. It's definitely not "breaking and entering" because after all, the "door" was not only unlocked, it was open.
