Hey everyone, I go to a boarding school where the school controls all of our internet consumption. No cell reception either because we're in the middle of nowhere. They shut off our ethernet ports completely at 12:00am midnight. Obviously, this can get really annoying, especially when I'm trying to do work or watch Netflix on a Saturday night. There are some students, proctors, who are given all night internet access (as a "privilege"), and their computers work when plugged in to their ethernet ports. When I plug my own in to their port, however, it doesn't work. I think that the school restricts internet to only some MAC addresses (although I'm not sure). Does anyone know what they may be doing? My mac always says that I'm connected to Ethernet, but I'm not on the actual internet past 12. Any ideas on how to get around this?
