Does anyone know of any hotspots in brisbane and surrounding suburbs that they have picked up on?

Please share if you do.

Oops, forgot to login.
I work in Newcastle, the one in the UK, and I\'ve spotted warchalking in a few places, and since I don\'t use wi-fi on my Z, I \'borrowed\' a laptop off a friend and found a nice \'free\' internet connection.
People really should secure their networks.

Brisbane City Council have a few open hotspots around as well. Queen Street Mall for one but only port 80 last time I checked.

You might find some at www.wigle.net. They claim to cover the world although I have only looked at Texas.]

Unfortunately www.wigle.net only contains GPS maps for the US.

I quote:

Query for networks
Fill in as much or little as you want
Addresses are for the U.S. only (2002 Census data)

So much for \"Worldwide database and mapping\"

But thanks for your input all the same jerbell.
