It was at a neighbor's house, while we were installing Ubuntu on his
computer we were browsing the net on my laptop. There is another wifi
router in the area that I pick up, but it is also protected by WEP so
I wasn't connected to it.
I'll be there again next week so I'll test then. Maybe I've been rooted :)
