I knew it would have something to do with MAC addresses. I'm using a Belkin, would you also happen to know how it would show on his screen? Would it show he's been blocked? or does it simply tell him he can't connect? Sorry, I don't have another computer to test this on at the moment.

I wouldn't know off the top of my head.

Thanks for the replies so far!

Yes, while I would be able to spoof someone else log in, I'm more interested in getting around the proxy.

I guess since my company has booked the whole hotel, it would be a good time to practice spoofing, since I know every one on the network!

Does anyone know anything about why the ping is aloud out and back in with out going through the proxy?

Thanks

If you don't know what that means, you shouldn't be messing with your router's configuration settings.

Oh, wait. You're talking about my uncle. He wouldn't get an IP. Ahh, I thought your were talking to the OP. My bad. So, cool. He won't even see any errors huh? He uses win 7 on his laptop, it won't show an error telling him he was blocked right?

Just want to make sure :)

Thanks again.

Actually, when you give the router the Mac it will search his computer for personal information. Ie. His relation to you and also what his computer habits are. Ie porn. So it will automatically flash a warning on his screen saying "Uncle: you have been banned from the wifi for the following reasons: pornography and general jack-assery. Thank you, and have a nice day."

I'm use to less hacker populated forums, but this is how I'd handle it.

Main topic- Hack the hotel wifi and bypass the proxy
---
Free wifi is always the easiest to hack, mainly because most forums don't allow illegal conversation and cracking and piggybacking off wifi networks is a felony in some states. I don't know a comparable program, but the iNet Pro app for iPhone is a great tool to see just about anyone connected to your wifi network (including mac addresses, open ports). Then use a mac address changer (reccomend Technitium MAC Address Changer) to one of the other computers on the network. If you are really lucky and the hotel is really stupid, just try a secure connection to the websites on port 8080. If not, the first thing I think of to bypass a proxy is use another proxy. Use one that does not connect using ports 80 or 8080. You might have to find one that works properly or quickly enough, but it will work.

Secondary topic- the uncle
---
Really simple, unless you have an ancient router.
Connect to your router, find something along the lines of a "Network" tab or any other display that shows all the people connected to the network. Even on my cheap free Actiontec router from Verizon, I have plenty of options to block websites, websites with embedded keywords, block specific outgoing ports or just cut off all internet connection.
