    Default Good idea to torrent on my school wifi?

    Ok, my ISP is pretty unforgiving when it comes to illegal downloads. Now my school has pretty decent wifi, and I want to torrent my stuff off of that. Is there a chance that my school tech person would be able to identify that it is me downloading the stuff? I have my own personal macbook air. My worry is that they would notice the speeds dropping, and somehow be able to tell from my IP that it is me.

    Any input (preferably from JL or someone else who really knows their shit)?

    Thanks,
    NIck

    Is it possible to "hide/Change" your IP address by using a VPN, couldn't you?

    If you're on their network, they'll be able to tell who is using up the most bandwidth. I'm no expert for sure, but I do believe they'll be able to track you based on your IP. I might be wrong though.

    It's pretty fucking easy to find out who's eating up bandwith with programs like Capsa or even moocherhunter.
    Must of the network monitoring tools can even be used my a ten year old,so if your school tech guy isn't a complete retard, he will fuck you up.

    I realize that, but how will he know that its me personally? I realize they will know my IP, but besides that, how can they find out my name?

    Don't be a fucking idiot, don't torrent on your school wifi.
    Buy a torrent friendly vpn and torrent on your home connection. Use common sense

    No there are options to hide yourself in a ton of torrent clients. But when you connect to the internet the admin of that internet will have access to all things connected. About the only thing they can do is force you offline. (if you protect your pc properly) But I seriously doubt anything would even be noticed. Unless you are downloading with some super speed torrent client that doesn't exist to the public. (most torrent clients only download at speeds that wouldn't even get on anyone's radar. And how on earth are you being detected by your home isp. It is very unlikely your isp is as strict as you think.
    In the past two months I have torrent downloaded over 3 tb of data. (media, games, operating systems, and whatnot.) And haven't even heard a word from my isp.
    But then again maybe I wouldn't even notice being throttled.
    Hardline connection instead of wireless....lol

    Don't torrent on any public wifi. If you need to torrent stuff, look into a seedbox from a site like feral hosting.

    MAC address, you most likely have to authenticate using your school-issued credentials.

    Just get a VPN or seedbox. Better safe than sorry.
