If someone goes around logs into other people’s computer and locks their wireless internet [so that others are not nichshal] and all they have to do is reset the password is this a problem?

Answer:

It is not permitted to do this.

If a person leaves his connection open, we must assume that he wants it open (the vast majority of people are aware of the option of locking it), and we don’t have the right to interfere with his property (it is “his” conncetion) and lock it on his behalf.

The availability of wireless connections is a reality that we must deal with; locking connections here are there will not solve it, and is not permitted.
