I am sure somebody has thought of this before and it has probably actually been done, but, I was sitting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport today and looking at the available wireless networks (they offer free although very unreliable 802.11b Internet access) and along with the usual airport networks (named Ft. Lauderdale something-or-other) there was one just labeled “Free Wireless Internet” or something like that.

Looking at the list, it occurred to me that it would probably be pretty easy to setup your own customized wireless router, repeating the traffic from the legitimate router, but, collecting all of the data from the users: capturing passwords, business information, etc. I would think doing this would be quite easy. Thoughts?
