It's *incredibly* easy to crack *some* types of wireless passwords (old
WEP, etc...). Newer algorithms used (WPA, etc...) are more secure.
That said, I'm of the opinion of most other folks who have already
responded: Stealing is stealing, and it is *unethical* to hack into
someone's wireless network for the purposes of using the internet.
I wouldn't even look for the easy way out, if I was asked for this - I'd
just simply say no.
My 2 cents....
