While Wardriving I like to..........

Hey guys, if any of you are wardrivers, post the things you like to do once your inside a network. Heres my top 5 list:

1. Change the SSID to somthing like.... "Easy to Hack"
2. upload a file to one of the computers tellin them how to set some better security.
3. upgrade their router with third party firmware, letting me extend the range of their AP

(things ive thought about, but havnt actually done yet)
4. change their router password
5. set 128 bit encryption
