Default Routing internet to Xbox (Getting around Cisco)

My college has Cisco and we need to log into it to be able to use the internet. Also, this makes it so we cannot connect the internet to our Xboxes, but if we pay the college $50, they say they can hook us up.

I'm trying to find a way around this and be able to hook it up. Any suggestions?

hmmm I'm interested too to find out the solution I could imagine connect the xbox straight to a router that is plugged into the internet, since the xbox only need to read the internet you should not need any password or log in for the xbox to use the internet BUT I could be wrong.

Perhaps someone else can solve this.

well, on the site it says Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) is the worldwide leader in networking that transforms how people connect, communicate and collaborate.

Idk much about it, but basically its a networking program that allows you to access the internet. You have to log in and everything before you can go on the web

do you not just use the same password that you use to log in with your computer to log in with the xbox?

because in most campuses to get on the internet you log in with an account they give you, usually your email information. He's asking if that is not the case for the xbox where you'd just need to open a web-browser enter the login info and go.

Right right. I log into cisco with the account given to me. For Xbox, if I try to log on it just says I cannot connect whether I've connected my Xbox to my computer or directly from the wall jack. Ive also tried network sharing but that doesn't work either.

So when you say you log into cisco, you are logging into a network application sold by Cisco systems, and not logging into Cisco system Inc. the company.

You won't be able to plug the XBox into your computer and connect without setting up Interent Connection Sharing.
Is the computer your personal computer or a computer that the college has given to you?
Coming out of the wall jack, does the cable run right into your computer? You can not take this cable and plug it into your XBox?

Is it possible the college has setup some kind of MAC filtering to only allow certain computers/devices to connect to their network?

Some of the state schools here need a username and password even they are hard-wired so I'm pretty sure that just plugging into the wall won't work for him. I just find it weird that school would charge you to have internet enabled on your xbox. Have you looked on your schools site to see if there is a "how to" on there? My best guess is that $50 is to come out and set it up, not for use.

1. My computer is my own personal computer, yes.
2. I have 2 ethernet cables. I cannot one from the wall jack to my computer to give me internet.
3. Plugging the cable from the wall into the Xbox doesn't work. I tested the connection. The network is fine, but there is no internet connection
4. I have heard of way to manipulate the MAC address to give "free" internet here. I just can't remember how to do it

I looked it up and this is all I could find:

If you would like to connect multiple computers or an Internet-ready game console, you will need to pay an additional connection fee per device, per semester. Cisco Clean Access only handles registration of a single computer in your name. You will need to call the Technology Support Center at x3456 to get the device(s) registered. Please be prepared to provide them with the Ethernet Hardware Address of the additional device (see next question for finding the ethernet hardware address).

It looks like maybe they are using a Cisco NAC appliance.

What you are looking for is something called MAC address spoofing. I'm not going to tell you how to do it because it's on the gray line of stealing the connection (and I don't know how to do it on an xbox).

Between this and what chipeater linked to, I'm pretty sure you'll just have to pay up. Cisco products pretty good at what they do, and I'm sure that will be hard to fool.

This is what I was referring to when I mentioned MAC Address Filtering.

^This.

Sounds like you're gonna have to pay up.
