How can I access my college router in order to port forward it to use torrents?
you probably can't. you could try typing in 192.168.0.1 into your address bar. but even if that connects to the router, it's likely password protected
If that doesn't work type ipconfig /all and look for the default gateway IP address....type that into your browser address bar with http:// before it.
i'm sure you can figure out some type of proxy, you will need to use some sort of packet analyzer . if they are just blocking ports, you can get around that.
if they are dropping packets because of content. you would probably have to encrypt the packets to get past the router
If you manage to get your torrents working, at least have the courtesy to limit your bandwidth so you don't hoard the internet connection that other students might be using to actually do work.
Students actually work?? LEIZ!
access your college router... not the router you have in your room, you mean the one run by the college?
type 192.168.0.1 and see???
please tell me these are jokes, otherwise this is 10/10 for stupidity
1)go track down the router
2)plug in console cable
OP, this may come in handy
..... this thread is killing me ........
oh yeah, thats step number 2.5
on a serious note, you may be able to telnet into the router...but i doubt it
if he can telnet into his college's router then people need to be fired.
Hey now, the network engineer might have just subnetted it that way! You never know!
Oh, and once you get in with telnet, make sure you go into config mode and set the banner motd to I'M IN YOUR BASE, STEALING YOUR MEGAHERTZ
wtf people, lol
this totally works
i just did it on my college router
1. find where router is physicall located
2. swap with own router
3. log in router and port forward
Careful, if you pull this off it could be reason for dismisal from the school.
Aslong as the admin's can still get to their pr0n.. they will not suspect a thing
