    Free public Wifi - computer to computer network

    Although I've got my own router, just wondered if there would there be any risk in using this?

    One can use tools like Backtrack to setup what appears something like a free public access WIFI, for information gathering etc.. Like all things too good to be true, be careful. Even legit public WIFI spots pose risks. Example - http://news.zdnet.com/2100-1035_22-6122707.html
