    Depends, do they only allow certain sites and block all others or do they have a system that has a list of blocked sites?

    Don't do it. If you are found doing this you will be in extreme trouble. At the very least I would expect you will be banned from using the computers, more likely you will be suspended or even expelled.

    It's not your network: you must learn to respect the owners (the schools) wishes.

    True, I got caught and I only got off coz I know the technicians!

    That said, everyone in my school gets into block sites and very few get into trouble.

    I think you should just not get caught... Thats the key.

    Thats annoying, no change of using a proxy website, then.

    HOWEVER, there is another way. As you said in your post the wireless has blocked sites, I am assuming you are connecting your laptop to their Wi-Fi? If so, or if you have unrestricted options menus on the school's browser, you can get proxies and change them manually.

    Assuming you have a Mac, look at this.

    Then search Google for proxies.
