It seems to me the FBI ought to have a procedure to check for something like this. A lot of people are not all that computer literate when it comes to wireless, and this is not the first time someone has used an unsuspecting person’s connection to criminal ends.
Yes, wireless users need to savvy about these things. But at the same time, one would think that a federal law enforcement agency with supposed experts in cybercrime working the case would have accounted for that possibility before they started raiding people’s homes.
Just sayin’. I’m glad they got the right person in the end.
All internet traffic is addressed through the router, It is up to the routers to “route” it to the proper computer. The stream of data that could be monitored does not indicate any decisions by the router. It just shows the stream of data going to that particular router.
I just hope the police tried the old method of using a warrent and knocking on the door. Not kicking in the door with a flash bang in the window.
The old method of doing things got a lot less people killed and tended to make you respect the police instead of hate them.
