I somehow doubt the hotel would want me bypassing their $15 per day charge to surf the web... I don't like the idea of spoofing the ARP and grabbing people's credentials, although I have seen that idea mentioned. It's not my intent to do any harm to someone's network, or gain usernames/passwords of other members.
It's one of those things where I'm getting sent out of town for training, company isn't paying me Per Diem, yet I'm stuck somewhere else, having to eat out since I can't just cook something at home, yet no extra money to compensate. Nothing to do, and no extra cash to go out on the town when I'm not in training, so all I can do is sit on my butt afterwards in an empty hotel room. I'd like to at least be able to use the internet. The overpriced hotel here however doesn't include internet with your room, even after paying the outrageous prices the hotel is charging for a single room (almost $200 per day), no discount on the room even though the training session is also being held in their hotel. Internet is an additional $15 per day. They then continue to slap you in the face with an additional $20+ per day for parking (Not included in your room fees either). I was hoping to find some sort of simple loophole where I'd be able to surf the web, access forums/email, and maybe chat on YahooIM/AIM to kill the boring nights excess time. I guess you can call it stealing/unethical to bypass it, but at the same time, it seems unethical for them to charge for it, and especially a price like that. I know big wig corporate people who stay there can care less as they've got so much money they can simply expense it. The little man however isn't so lucky.
