I live on campus...and they limit our bandwith for the internet. They also turn the internet off at 11:30 (for all freshmans, sophmores and juniors). So unless you're a senior, you won't have internet access after 11:30.
Three years ago, some kid was able to take the school's internet line and divide it up so that he had his own little internet access - that way he did not have to share his bandwith and had fast speeds with no limit on when his internet would go out. I'd like to know how/where i can find out how to do this! Thanks so much!

This sounds like the stuff of urban legends. Either that or the student was using somebody else's wireless network illegally.
Attempting to circumvent your university's provision of the Internet is not generally a good idea because they will tell you that it only takes one person to spoil it for everybody else and this could result in further internet restrictions - abuse it, you lose it. So unless you want to be that person, I'd go with the flow.
