Hi,
I've recently got a new router for use in my flat at uni and am currently trying to set it up.

The problem I'm having is that the Uni network only allows one machine to be registered per user, and when attempting to connect the proxy claims that my machine isn't registered and blocks me I think because of the router.

Is there any way that I can hide the fact that the router is in use? As it is my IP address changes, and I assume that this is what is picked up and blocked.

I can't ask the uni tech guys either as wireless is frowned on slightly :(

Thanks,

I've heard it is something to do with my MAC code, how do I find this on a Win 7 machine?

We do not help to circumvent security or policy.

If you plan to adhere to the one computer and no wireless restrictions there is no point in a router except for the "natural" firewall protection it provides. The firewall included in Windows XP SP2 and 3, Vista and Windows 7 will give the same protection.
