Hi guys,
Our college wi-fi has blocked Android, iPhone and Windows Phone users from connecting to the network. Laptops are able to connect fine. Upon noticing how they block devices, it turns out that they block the mac addresses, and they keep doing so even after changing mac address. Changing MAC address on a blocked laptop works, on mobiles, it doesn't.
What I understand is that the routers are blocking all mobile devices directly, is there any way I can change my android device to appear as a laptop? From all I've tried searching and understanding, with UPnP connections, this data about the device is trasmitted?
I would be very glad if anyone can help me out with this. Just for information, my mobile is a rooted Galaxy S Advance (i9070), and the routers are the Aruba 105s.

probably they identify devices by another method and not by mac.

write in google: "How knowing the device, carrier and connection" and you'll find the answers.

ICMP blocking
hello guys
As I came to know that there firewall is blocking the ICMP pinging request to the server that is handling the local request. so if some how we can mask the local IP and tunnel the network then we can easily use the internet without any rules applied with full bamdwidth .
You can mail me if any one wants to work on it.
