Intermittently, it will connect and browsing proceeds normally. If I connect via LAN Ethernet, all is well. I'm using a Netgear WG111 v2 wireless adapter connected via USB to my desktop. My wireless router is a Netgear WGR614 v6 [more inside]

I'm looking for a wardriving map of downtown Toronto that was posted online a year or two ago. It had wireless networks marked in three colours: encrypted, unencrypted, and out-of-the-box. I had a copy on my hard drive, but I think I've lost it. Does anyone know where I can find it?
