Techopedia explains Wardriving
Many confuse wardriving with leeching or piggybacking. The difference is that somebody who leeches a connection is attempting to use an unsecure connection without permission. In many parts of the world, unauthorized use of a network in this fashion is illegal. Wardriving is different -- the goal is to collect information about open wireless connection, often to develop a map of connectivity in a certain area.
