Default Wifi browsing help??!!

So, I live where I work and I get free internet through the open wifi but I was wondering if there is a way that I can browse the internet without my boss being able to see the websites I visit or that it was me. I know for a fact my boss sees all the websites anyone who uses the wifi has looked at. I know there are proxy sites that will change my ISP, but wouldn't my boss be able to see that I visited the proxy changing site to begin with? Is there software or some other solution to this? Thank you.

I'd bet real money a hotel.
You boss has good reason to be looking. If you do something on their network that is illegal they can get in some serious shit over it. As manager of a hotel property you bet your ass I'm keeping tabs on what the guests and employees are looking at.
Kiddie porn ran in to or out of my hotel network can get us shut down and my happy ass in some serious shit. Sites are blocked along with some url extensions. I may not like how much it costs me but my ISP is on the ball when it comes to things like that.
You want your privacy get ClearWire. Other wise you're at the mercy of the open and free wifi connection you have.

If you don't want your boss to see what your doing on the web then buy your own internet stick or something like that. It sounds like you have something to hide from him. As Setishock said if you doing anything illegal on his network and his ISP catches him, he can get into a lot of strife just because of your stupidity..
