WIFI Robin

A buddy just sent me an email about this device, and I did a quick search here, with no results. http://www.wifirobin.com/
Has anyone tried this device, or can reply with links to reviews, user feedback etc?
Be interested if it lives up to its claims

thanks

Re: WIFI Robin

The hardware hacker geek in me is interested.

However, you can do the same thing with Backtrack, a wifi card that can do injections, and a little know how, so embedding it and adding a fancy gui to it shouldn't be impossible.

And not really all that ethical unless you're doing it on a pen-test, but the web page isn't geared for that it's telling people to steal other people's wifi.

Re: WIFI Robin

:D Hahahaa.....that's hilarious. They're selling a device to do something that is absolutely against the law. Wonder how long they'll be around. Not only that they may well be exceeding the 36dBm/4 watts limit but when your product is designed to break the law I guess it doesn't matter. It also doesn't take into account that while you can send a big fat signal with 1000mw that doesn't mean you'll be able to hear them back.

OR you could do what this guy did-

Re: WIFI Robin

The maker of this device clearly plans of making easy money and doesn't have plans of staying in the market. In starting up a small business, the very important thing is to make it legitimate. I wonder who will only be left with a solid internet connection if everyone can have it for "FREE". :D
