Comment Two BIG issues with this. (Score 1) 764

First, I have multiple friends who have served hours of community service, spent nights in jail, and paid large fees JUST for using someones wifi. Officers pulled up to them infront of a school and arrested them for using its wifi.

Second, when I first got my wifi card, a realtek, I installed it, then the drivers and included software, the SECOND the installation completed, it automatically found the nearest unencrypted network, and connected me, I didn't tell it to, I didn't say which network to connect to, nothing, total automation. Under this act would I go to jail just because the card's software automatically does such a thing?
