Introduction: Connect Your IDevice to Your School's Wifi!
Everyone just got back to school, and you connect your ipod or ipad to your high school's wifi network. Whether it's to do your history homework or play words with friends at lunch, you have to wait to get home. Well not anymore! I'll show you how to use the internet at school. Plus I don't have to worry about you guys looking at porn and stuff because that is blocked on their internet!
What you will need:
A jailbroken ipod touch, iphone, or ipad
You will need access to one of your school's apple computers or idevices (such as an ipad or itouch.)
I am not sure if this will work with all school networks, but it works with mine. How you can probably tell, is to try to connect without doing anything. If the network has no password, but doesn't work when you log on, this will most likely work.
Most school wifi networks work with a pre-programmed list of accepted MAC addresses. A MAC address is a unique signature most electronic devices have. If yours is on the list, you can use the internet. This will show you how to change yours to be the same as one of the school's.
The first thing you need to do is obtain a mac address from an apple device connected to your schools wifi network. If it is an ipod touch or an ipad, go to the settings app and click on general. Then click on about. Scroll down to near the bottom where it says: wifi address. There should be a bunch of letters and numbers separated by colons. Write it down EXACTLY how it appears, including the capital letters and colons.
If the only thing you have access to is one of the apple laptops, this is how to find the mac address. I've never actually used this method, so be sure to comment and tell me if it works. Go to system preferences, go to network, and then to advanced. Your MAC address is your airport id. There should be a bunch of letters and numbers separated by colons. Write it down EXACTLY how it appears, including the capital letters and colons.
Here's where your jailbroken device comes in. Go to cydia, and download the app called macX4. Once you have it, open it up. Type in the numbers, letters, and colons you recorded from the school device, and click change MAC. Your device will restart. Once it turns back on, you should be able to connect to the network. Notice- from my experience, push notifications, music, and possibly other things will not work, until you change back. Once you are done using wifi at the school, simply open the app again, and click restore original app. Your device will restart again, and everything will go back to normal.
