  1. I was able to change the mac address, but sadly when I connected to the wireless network in the dorms, the mac address got changed back to the blocked one. Very frustrating...
  2. even when i use sudo it still doesnt work. i will try the macchanger.
  3. Alright so I installed Ubuntu on my laptop and everything went smooth. When I went to try and change the MAC address using "ifconfig wlan0 down he ehter blah blah blah" is said it couldnt assign the requested address or something like that. I used IronGeeks MadMACs tool on my xp box and it successfully changed the mac and I was able to fool the network. So changing the MAC definitely works. I guess I could try tethering to my Droid, I'll let you guys know how it works out for me.
  4. Forgive my ignorance but can you please explain "ifconfig wlanx down", I'm not sure what that means. I have an xp laptop that I will try the tool on and see if it works. I'm also working on installing ubuntu on my laptop because its really easy to change a mac on linux right?
  5. When you say bring the interface down you mean turn off the adapter and all that junk? As far as tethering, I feel like I would need faster speeds than just 3G, but I dont even know if my phone can do it. (Motorola Droid, Verizon) Im running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
  6. Thanks for your response PurpleJesus, I like your avatar. Well then my next question is what is the best/easiest way to spoof my mac, I tried using IronGeeks MADMacs, but it didnt seem to change my mac after I rebooted, but I may have been using it wrong. As far as going into the office and talking to them; this is my 3rd copyright violation and I have already been into see them and they said they won't turn it on until the first week of June at the earliest.
  7. Thanks for the response StankDawg. Well the thing is that you only log in with your account once, then the device is "attatched" to your account from then on. I can go to a library computer and log in with my account and it works fine but thats on a different network im pretty sure. Even when I try to go on the wireless in the dorms or around campus with my old computer (tied to my university account also) it is blocked also. So Im pretty sure they blocked my account on the wireless network in the dorms and around campus. If I could somehow make it so the network thinks that my laptop is connecting for the first time I would simply be able to log in with a friends account and go from there. At this point I'm just trying to be able to do my online homework in the convienence of my dorm room, not even thinking about downloading more shit.
  8. hey guys, my university turned off my internet because of copyright violation (downloading shit). i was wondering if there was any way i could get access back by changing my mac address or something like that. a little info about the school's network: its unsecured but you have to sign in with your university account the first time you connect a device. i dont know if this helps, but it is some info from the violation notice email they sent me.
