Are wireless air cards the answer to all of our prayers?

    Didn't know which category to post this to so here it is.
    On the subject of wireless net cards from AT&T, Sprint, etc.
    I used a friends comp and found that these air-card things change IP addresses and sprint changes the IP every time you disconnect and reconnect to the network. I'm GETTING ONE. Being a Black Hat and a gamer, I can think of a million reasons to change my IP on command.

    Why I ever paid for proxy-programs and lists is beyond me. I guess I just didn't know. This may be the answer to the prayers of half the people here at BHW.

    P.S. If this is a repost or something, I am sorry, but I see these questions about changing IPs ALL THE TIME here and it seems to be one of the biggest struggles among black hats. So for everyone....... here

    I dont see how even Big G can keep up with all the IPs those networks are using?

    Its in the millions and more are added everyday. The phone networks will also be moving whole number blocks as they get more market saturation, just like the regular phones get more area codes etc to accomodate more traffic.

    Its ambitious of big G but doubt seriously they can accomplish it.

    best solution is a dialup modem, I'd like to see Big G try and tag the ips of all those LOL

    Basically set it up on some old computer or laptop (if you don't have one buy something cheap on ebay) and use it for blackhatting.

    they can mate, these wireless cards are prone to abuse, and it has been happening over the years. I think Big G identified the companies owning them, and requested the IPs that they use. Impossible is not a word for Big G, Big G even monitors all the public proxies online.

    anyone that wants to ignore aircards can just not count anything from *.sprint.com *.t-mobile.com

    they can see a hostname when you connect

    So what is the conclusion?

    a) wireless card
    b) dial up

    A guy i know, what he does is tap into people wireless router connection. Basically he is stealing their bandwidth and using their Ip for free internet usage. By law, it's illegal but it will take a person who knows about this thing to detect it and report to the cops and they still have to trace from there.

    Anyone done this? or rather anybody's friend?:p

    Just do your black hat stuff on an open wireless network point. There are tons around - download Net Stumbler to find them.

    Have you ever gone over 5 gigs on your PAM internet? Do you know if there's a limit for that or if they'll charge you?

    What plan for sprint do you have for your phone? (I'm assuming unlimited internet on phone is on there somewhere)

    I read the whole block of Ips from aircard is blocked. So those IP won't work.

    I have an AT&T wireless card. It has a 5GB/month limit. If you go over the limit, you get a warning. If you go over the limit a few months in a row, you get a more stern warning over the phone (someone calls you up, and tries to determine what your needs are, and if they can help you find a better solution, bla bla). Yet, I have never had it slowed down or turned off. They just want to scare you, so you don't go crazy with the bandwidth usage.

    There used to not be such low bandwidth limits on these cards. Coffee shops and other pub-like places frequently used these cards to offer free Internet access. You can buy routers that you plug your AT&T/Sprint/Whatever card into, and it will broadcast the Internet out just like a normal wireless connection. Over the course of a month, with dozens of people accessing the Internet every day, the bandwidth levels were very high. So, limits and stricter monitoring of usage was imposed. At least, this is what the AT&T employees told me.

    That new ebook reader from Amazon, includes FREE wireless access to Sprint's network. Look it up. Only USA coverage though.

    I have a Blackberry phone and I just hook it up to my laptop with bluetooth and I have wireless internet anywhere...it's usually DSL speed too. I dunno if I'm supposed to do it but I haven't gotten in trouble or anything yet. I get a new IP everytime I connect with it too. :)

    So I have the Sprint SERO plan with unlimited data. I know how to tether with my Samsung A900 phone... I was wondering if the IP changes everytime I reconnect?

    or do I strictly need to have a "PAM" plan?

    I have heard of tethering from an iPhone. Has anyone tried this to see if it works and what about the IP changing?
