|Just FYI, I am a network tech at a university. |
If you're looking to be expelled then by all means, continue trying to circumvent the security put in place. Chances are, you'd also be charged criminally as well.
We look for people trying to circumvent security and scan for rogue wireless networks. I'm sure your college does too. While you could hide a SSID, you can't hide the actual signal. That's impossible. In order for a client to connect to a wireless network, there has to be a wireless network broadcasting and there's only one way to do that and it makes that WLAN visible to anybody scanning for rogues.
As I see it, you have only three legal options here:
1) Contact the universities IT department and ask them about putting something in place for you. Chances are the answer will be no, but you won't know unless you try.
2) If possible, get highspeed internet from a local provider run into your dorm room. Again, you'd need to check with the IT people (or the IT policy) to see if that's allowed, it may not be.
3) Accept what you're given and leave well enough alone and forget this silliness.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
