I don't know how it works in the real world but that wouldn't work at most universities. Unless your ethernet card address is registered and active in the IT database the DHCP server won't recognize your machine no matter what you do. <br><br>I guess it prevents non university people from leeching off the schools big pipes but it sure is a pain when you get a new machine. All the IT dudes need to do is paste my ethernet address into a text box and hit enter and its all done. Average time it takes to get it done.... 2-3 weeks. <br><br>
