wardriving with the iTouch

So, I'm playing with my new ipod touch the other day when I find that there's an unsecured wireless network in my area.

Being the estute atomican I looked it up on my laptop, because I'm curious and don't want to use it for free internet access at all..... that would be wrong....

So I look up local networks in range and sure enough there's my wireless network, however it's encrypted.

Now I'm curious, so for curiosity's sake I fire up the safari browser and log onto youtube, voila! It worked! And yet my laptop strangely could not.

Has anyone got any ideas on this?

maybe the victim was mid-configuration of their innocent home wifi network, and changing the settings at the exact time of your browsing?

an encrypted network doesn't necessarily mean you can't connect - sure it's not just open wep?

don't have a static ip on your laptop wifi?
