Are you asking how to locate ones geographically, or how to find out
which ones you see on your Wi-Fi cards list of available connections
are open to you? I can answer the second question, but not the first.
If you examine the list of available network names, the ones that
don't say "secure" or use some other word that means secure, like
closed or unavailable, they're useable by you without any special
access information like username or password. Everything else, no go.
I took an inventory of some of the networks I found in my own
apartment building that were open, wrote up a little note to those who
used names I could readily identify or associate with people (like
their name or apartment number), and put a little note under their
door, teling them their networks were unsecured. Two days later, they
were!
