After yesterday's fun with WarDriving in Toledo, I saddled up for the ride toward Cleveland along the Ohio Turnpike (from exit 59 in Toledo to exit 193 at route 44, Ravenna). The results, again, were interesting. A good mix of commercial and residential setups. As with yesterday, the Linksys equipment outnumbered the occasional NetGear and Apple stuff. This time I saw at least one 3com device too.
Another amusing thing was that I'd pick up the "flyingj" network when we'd go past some of the truck stops. I didn't expect that.
There were some long patches (20 minutes or so) of finding nothing, but even the rural areas we'd get lucky once in a while. When I was typing and not paying attention to the outside, I could tell when we approached a more populated area--the kismet alerts would start going off every 5 seconds or so. At one point we found 5 Linksys networks within 30 seconds of each other.
In total, there were 104 access points along that stretch of Turnpike. Door to door, we found 112.
