i wonder if he used wepcrack to get the initial keys

mac address is easily spoofable .. if your nic supports that feature
and if you're going around sniffing traffic, i think that'd be a
requirement of your nic you use :-)

i haven't done it (yet), but ifconfig can set your mac addy for you
	- did it several years ago ...

- once you have your wireless config for a mac addy, the silly 
  dhcp will give your ip# and gateway ... geez... now watch
  all the telnet/ftp/email traffic
