    Ok so I know methods for IOS4 but for IOS5 I can't find anyone method in doing this.
    I want to do this because I have my school wifi password but they have filtered the MAC addresses so only school computers and laptops are allowed.
    And yes it is jailbroken. (iPod Touch 4g)

    Thanks. ;)

    Since Wifi is only for school's computer/laptops, you are stealing it.

    Without permission... That is pretty much the definition of stealing.

    MAC Addresses are hard branded into the wireless chip. You may be able to spoof it, but I don't think this is possible in iOS.

    What you are considering doing is illegal in some countries (gain unauthorised access to a computer network or system) and could result in a criminal record. I would advise against it.

    Because maybe they are from stupid people who just butt in when they don't know anything.

    I am sure you know a lot. Go figure it out yourself. I think i've helped more people in MR than you do though.

    You challenged robbieduncan and got owned. Nice try. Now go steal something.

    "Stupid" people that evidently know more than you about not only the technology you're struggling with, but the laws and ordinances that apply to it? :rolleyes:
