The process of driving around while looking for unsecured wireless networks with the intention of signing on to one.
I was up at my cabin and needed to get on to the internet, so I went wardriving around the nearest town in search of wireless networks.

The sport of the uber leet. You scan for wi-fi networks on your laptop whilst driving around, sitting in mall parking lots, outside the hot chick you have your eye on's house, etc.

Some popular programs war drivers use are:
Netstumbler: http://www.netstumbler.org
Wardrive ToolBox: http://www.xenon-inc.com
Ethereal: http://www.ethereal.com
Aircrack: http://freshmeat.net/projects/aircrack

Just remember, it may be illegal to use a wireless access point without permission from the owner.
You should see these nudies I collected from last night's war driving.
