Haha i dont understand how they could detect where each device is coming from unless they have a separate wifi for each dorm or a different sub-net i know they could pick up another wireless router easily even if they were reading you ip that's easily spoofed even Mac address is via a proxy or vpn :P but anyways im pretty sure that's an manufacturer add-on ill look and let you now if i find anything :P the Acer might have it, if not im sure a dev could make it so somehow
This is straight quoting darkdragone make sure you thank him :P Here
not sure if it works with honeycomb, but on ICS I have used a usb ethernet adapter with the tablet, mind you that some applications dont work with it, but the browser and market place do. What you'll need to do first is have your tablet rooted, then download either android terminal emulator or Gscript lite (with gscript lite you can save the script for use again.) In the terminal you will want to run netcfg, this will show you all of your interfaces and will tell you if your usb to ethernet adapter is detected. If it is detected there will be an interface called usb and then a number aka usb0 or possibly even eth0. next you will want to take that interface and make sure it is up by running ifconfig usb0 up. next you'll need an ip address, if yours is assigned dynamically then run dhcpcd usb0 then setprop dns1 220.127.116.11 (or use whatever DNS server you wish). Now if you need a static address, such as 192.168.0.2 or something you would run ifconfig usb0 192.168.0.2. Also all of these commands will need root so make sure you type in su beforehand.
