Another Hacking Hickup At Don's
Last night I setup the linksys router Don had working here in his shop and got online for a number of hours.
When I was finished doing my email and looking around online for a while and making what orgonite I was involved with,
I turned off my pc and locked the shop and went to bed.
In the morning today, I came out and attempted to get online while visiting with Don.
I logged into my pc and noticed I had no internet connection available. My wireless card had been disabled in my pc.
That was a simple fix that I haven't had to do in quite some time. So I mentioned that to Don. We laughed. This is nothing new to him.
His linksys router was still plugged in and on but I had to disconnect it in order to configure a new router.
He had wanted to have a stronger signal to get past the jammers in place- stopping the signal from reaching his house.
So I went to setting up the other new router that hasn't been functional yet.
I noticed my wireless card attempting to connect to the other available linksys router.
Don's linksys router was unplugged.
I pointed it out to him and we laughed at the sh^&*birds attempt at cloning Don's linksys connection.
Their router wasn't even configured well enough to establish an automatic connection- to make the scam work
So I went about configuring his new router with a one of a kind connection name and a security key to keep outsiders- out.
I've done this type of setup on routers many times and it is very simple. We simply choose a security passcode specific for the router,
save the settings- scan for available networks in range- supply the passcode we set and connect.
Well not at the Croft's
Him and I had interesting conversation while I continued attempting this very simple router setup- for hours.
The only router setup we were able to connect to was a router setup which allows the Feds into
And this was after me clearing out of over 3 Gigabytes ( !!! ) of hacked crap out of my pc.
As soon as the router was setup without security, and the 3 Gigs of hacked BS was removed from my PC,
both him and I were able to get online- No problem.
The signal is still jammed from being useful in the house. You see the dog chasing the tail? We're online and life goes on.
Don has been having this type of subterfuge for about 10 years now so he just laughs and goes about his daily operations.
I have the networking and PC background to get this done in 5 minutes but some 5 hours later- we ended up having the same
kind of setup as we started with but with another router brand name.
The other linksys- yep, the DORknobs' clone of Don's linksys router- it is still there, available for connection but unable for us to connect to
(yet unsecured; go figure)
~even with Don's linksys unplugged and tossed in the same box as his other routers from over the years
I'm waiting to see when the new router brand name and/or connection name get cloned by the Feds- and show available for connection,
yet not being setup in a way that can be connected to-
Meanwhile; 30 minutes down the road, this picture was taken Today
No Joke. The picture and place and date is for real
