I have a little story to tell. Back when I was 16 my dad got it into his head to block our internet connection at night, fair enough in retrospect, but at the time this was a grave injustice in my eyes and needed correction. So first I change my MAC address and local IP; doesn't work. Then I manually reset the router and try to make it look unaltered, dad catches onto that. Then finally I crack our neighbors WEP and claim victory In a few weeks I went from not knowing the difference between a router and a modem to cracking WiFi - now that's a learning experience.
