Boy, those linksys and NETGEAR guys sure get around, don't they?

Interesting idea, but I'm not sure about the usefulness of it. For example, my neighborhood is pretty well mapped according to the site, yet none of the wifi signals on my street (including my own) show up.

I don't get it.

Neat. And incredibly, incredibly slow.

That interface is 15 years too late.

Holy cow, looking at the map you'd think there are no wireless access points in south Dallas. I can't figure out if they don't really exist or people are just too afraid of wardriving that part of town.

A quick look through the FAQ and forums hasn't helped me understand HOW this database can be used. What do people DO with the info?

I cant figure out how my little wireless home network got on the map! I am amazed that someone somewhere in my neighborhood entered it. It has to have been fairly recently cause I didnt even have wireless in our house till just 3 months ago. And most of the people in our neighborhood are old and retired. Hell, I thought I was the only one who even had a computer, much less internet savy. I'm on a street way back in the boonies north of Oklahoma City..... Interesting.

All the map images come up broken for me.
